[Conversation book] Beethoven im Gespräch. Ein Konversationsheft vom 9. September 1825. Faksimile und Kommentar von Grita Herre. Übersetzung ins Englische von Theodore Albrecht. [Beethoven Haus, Sammlung H.C. Bodmer Br 287].
Veröffentlichungen des Beethoven-Hauses, III/17. Bonn, 2002. 15 x 23 cm, 98 pp (28 illus). Full-color facsimile of a Beethoven “Konversationsheft” (conversation book) compiled at the Gasthaus “Zum wilden Mann” on the occasion of the performance of the Quartet in A Minor, op.132. It was through these conversation booklets that Beethoven, now almost completely deaf, was able to converse with the world. What we see written is only half of the conversation (that of his conversation partners), in this case Maurice Schlesinger (1798-1872), Sigmund Anton Steiner (1773-1838), Karl Holz (1799-1858), Sebastian Schmidt (1776-d.?) and Ignaz Schuppanzigh (1776-1830). The books provide a fascinating glimpse into Beethoven’s world. With full transcription, commentary, and English translation. Wrappers. Sold out. (more info... ) [item no.8135]

CLEMENTI, Muzio, 1752-1832

[Correspondence] The Correspondence of Muzio Clementi. Edited by David Rowland.
Muzio Clementi, Opera Omnia. Bologna, 2010. 8˚, 692 pp. This critical edition includes some 20 previously-unknown letters by Clementi, in addition to about 30 more that were written to him, his family, associates, or individuals. Furthermore, many letters only previously referred to or partially quoted are published here in full. Clementi’s correspondence opens a window on a number of aspects of his life, the lives of other contemporary musicians, and the international music business of the time. The letters clearly show the extent of Clementi’s contacts with European publishers and instrument sellers, including Artaria, Breitkopf & Härtel, Erard, Naderman, Nägeli, Pleyel, Ricordi and Streicher. One of the most striking features of the correspondence is the esteem in which Clementi was held among musicians all over Europe, as well as the use that he made of his reputation. His relations with Haydn, Dussek and Beethoven are well-known, but other figures emerge, such as Bomtempo, Himmel and Righini, as well as minor figures about whom very little is known, such as Nezot. In summary, the correspondence reveals an intelligent and cultured British citizen, a good friend, an energetic musician who was at the heart of the development of London’s musical institutions, and an extremely astute and well-connected businessman. $227 [item no.6883]

[Arnold Schönberg Center] Schönberg. Pierrot Lunaire Companion. Elke Fess, Therese Muxeneder.
Vienna, 2012. 15 x 22 cm, 80 pp, w/ 42 color illus. Beautifully illustrated catalog produced on the occasion of composition of Arnold Schoenberg’s Pierrot lunaire in Berlin in 1912. The work was commissioned by Albertine Zehme, whose recitations were marked by a highly individual aesthetic, aiming to “recapture the ear’s prerogative in life”. In terms of its genre, Pierrot lunaire was historically unique at the time Schoenberg composed it and marks the high point of his expressionistic period. The famous melodrama is placed in the extreme danger zone of post-Romantic composition. Pierrot, “with waxen countenance”, is a bizarre and nervous figure, enticed into a counterworld of nighttime phantasms and hopeless passions. A cosmos of tonal shading in the colorful realm between singing and speaking. Ger/Eng. Wrappers. $15 (more info... ) [item no.9312]

Arnold Schönberg Playing Cards—Whist/Bridge. 1909/1919.
Los Angeles, 2015. 54 cards. Besides composing and his theoretical writings Schoenberg produced hundreds of paintings, toys, games, chess sets and playing cards for his own use. Here is one set of playing cards—carefully executed in facsimile. The style is described: “[this] set is more severe and geometric, almost digital. His inventiveness was driven by a passion for rules, order and numbers, and his cards also reveal his capacity for highly personal expression. The elongated cards are divided into four suits (based upon clubs, hearts, spades and diamonds) each comprising both numeral and double-ended court cards. The designs don't contain many curves and are more technical than fluid. The influence of Jugendstil is recognisable.” The original cards were made in watercolors and gouache on cardboard with gold and silver. With plastic box. $20 (more info... ) [item no.9445]

Woodstock, 2015. 22 x 25 cm. 82 pp. Exhibition catalog with 85 B/W and color illustrations celebrating the longest continuously-run summer classical music series in America. Hervey White established the utopian Maverick Colony in Woodstock NY in 1905, building the Maverick concert hall in 1916, a barn-like “cathedral in the woods”. Like the Bayreuth Festival, he made use of talented musicians on summer break, many who later became “Woodstockers” themselves, with programming of an eclectic mix of the old masters alongside of modernists (latter premieres include Cowell’s Trio in Nine Short Movements, Cages’ 4’ 33” and many Starer works). This lovingly compiled tribute-exhibit—using documents, art and objects from local institutions and private holdings—skillfully weaves together the story of the Maverick Concerts with elements of its founder, musicians, composers, visual artists and appreciative audience.

Mosch, Ulrich & Matthias Kassel. “Entre Denges et Denezy...” Documenti sulla storia della musica in Svizzera 1900-2000. A cura di Ulrich Mosch in collaborazione con Matthias Kassel.
Una pubblicazione della Paul Sacher Stiftung, Basilea. Lucca, 2001. 4º, 480 pp. Exhition catalogue. In 2000 the Swiss Association of Musicians (Schweizerischer Tonkünstlerverein), which Paul Sacher served for many years as president (1946-55) and honorary president (1955-99), celebrated its 100th anniversary by putting on a festival of the arts in St. Moritz. This gave the Foundation a welcome opportunity to offer a retrospective view of the past century by exhibiting music manuscripts, letters, photographs, and other documents from its rich holdings of 20th-c. Swiss music. The exhibition featured the contrasting currents of 20th-c. music, from the late romantic symphony of the fin de siècle through classical modernism and twelve-tone music to the present-day avantgarde. Examples were presented from the music of Hans Huber, Arthur Honegger, Frank Martin, Klaus Huber, Rudolf Kelterborn, and many others. Equally evident was the role played by institutions such as radio and by the country's many outstanding performers (including Ernest Ansermet, Paul Sacher, Hermann Scherchen, and Heinz and Ursula Holliger) in the dissemination and establishment of contemporary music in Switzerland. Another topic was the importance of music in invoking a national identity (e.g. the “intellectual civil defense” movement of the 1930s and 1940s) and the importance of Switzerland as a haven for such composers and performers as Béla Bartók, Adolf Busch, Sándor Veress, Wladimir Vogel, and Bohuslav Martinu. Nearly 200 exhibition items vividly recreated a century of Swiss music history, while the working manuscripts offered many a glimpse into the composers' working methods.
