MUSIC: A NEW CATEGORY AND 16 MORE MANUSCRIPTS

Altogether 16 manuscripts have been added to the Schoyen Collection website in the Music Collection.

Three of the new manuscripts make up a new category in the Music Collection.

Most of the other additions are also in the COMPOSERS AT WORK section:

Classical Period

Romanticism

Modern

A manuscript for the highly improvisational work by Schnittke, his Cantus Perpetuus, has also been included under Graphic Notation.
