Description
The Oswald Jonas memorial collection combines the papers of the Austrian music theorist Heinrich Schenker (1868-1935) with the papers of Oswald Jonas (1897-1978), a distinguished Schenker pupil and loyal disciple. Added to these are the papers of Moriz Violin (1879-1956), concert pianist and Schenker's closest friend, including the monumental Schenker-Violin correspondence extending from 1896 to 1935. The total collection comprises about 75,000 leaves of manuscript largely unpublished, including music manuscripts, theoretical and analytical studies, critical essays, letters, Schenker's Tagebücher kept over forty years (1896-1935), biographical materials and printed scores from Schenker's working library, often heavily annotated. In addition there are books, pamphlets, periodical publications, corrected galley and page proofs, notebooks, drafts and fragments from Schenker's work table, photographs and other memorabilia, together with related correspondence and research materials assembled by Jonas.
