ALFRED SCHNITTKE AUTOGRAPH MANUSCRIPTS sold to Vanderbilt University
"The Anne Potter Wilson Music Library at the Blair School of Music (Vanderbilt University) is pleased to announce the acquisition of two autograph manuscripts by composer Alfred Schnittke (1934-1998). The manuscripts were purchased from J & J Lubrano Music Antiquarians. 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 cellilst 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
