Series Arrangement

 

Series I: Music Manuscripts

Scope and Content Note

Includes all original manuscripts and some photocopies (when a manuscript is missing or if there are markings on the photocopies.) Individual sketches of specific works are kept with the main manuscript. Sketchbooks, and unidentified single sketches, however, are kept in the subseries E, sketches. Juvenalia includes both music and nonmusic materials, because of the orignal arrangement. In this subseries, many sketches, some exercies books (music and others) and other writings are included. Copyright notices are generally kept with the compositions, as in the original order.
