ALFRED SCHNITTKE AUTOGRAPH MANUSCRIPTS

The two manuscripts - Epilogue for Violoncello, Piano and Tape and Sinfonisches Vorspiel - are from Schnittke's mature period, and are dated 1993 and 1994, respectively. Epilogue was written for Russian cellist Mstislav Rostropovich, and is an arrangement from the concluding part of Schnittke's ballet score Peer Gynt (1986). Sinfonisches Vorspiel is a work for large orchestra, dedicated to the conductor Gerd Albrecht, who gave the work's first performance with the Philharmonisches Staatsorchester in the Hamburg Musikhalle on 6 November 199i4. Both scores are densely packed with erasures, cancellations, corrections, and indications of scoring." Holling Smith-Borne, Vanderbilt University, in Notes for NOTES, Volume 74, No. 3, March 2018
