« The Charles Wuorinen Papers is a collection of more than 300 containers which represents an unusually complete picture of the lifelong activities of composer Wuorinen. Music in the collection includes virtually all of Wuorinen’s output, and it demonstrates for nearly each work the extended, complex stages of his compositional process—with the inclusion of holograph manuscripts, sketches, heavily annotated computer printouts in successive versions, and published scores. Wuorinen’s chronological and subject files also document many aspects of his professional and personal activities. »

« The Mario Davidovsky Papers document the work of the renowned composer whose career was spent at the forefront of electro-acoustic music. Containing approximately 5,500 items, the materials include Davidovsky’s holograph music manuscripts, sketches, and annotated printed scores (as well as music by select students and colleagues), and personal and business papers. »

« The papers of Robert Hernried (1883-1951) document activities of this composer, conductor, musicologist, and professor, who fled Nazi persecution. The collection contains holograph scores, primarily for the works he composed in the United States, though some scores predate his immigration. There are also four songs by Robert Schumann in the hand of his grandson Ferdinand. However, it is the correspondence between Hernried and translator Theodora Lau that is most engaging. »

« Composer Gian Carlo Menotti created the Festival dei Due Mondi in 1958 and its American counterpart, Spoleto Festival U.S.A., in 1977. The Spoleto Festival Programs consist of individual event programs, season programs, and thematic flyers, including some for the Italian events. This is an ideal collection for scholars seeking to investigate programming practice in the late 20th century, as well as the careers of select artists. »
