BOX 5-39Musical Scores
Individual holograph manuscript scores and sketches of SR and holograph manuscript scores of other composers as well as published musical scores of the works of both SR and of other composers.
Individual holograph manuscript scores and sketches of SR: entries are arranged first by opus number within Rachmaninoff's works catalog, then by works without opus numbers (where they are arranged alphabetically by title). Each entry is indicated first by its uniform title (within square brackets) and then by its designated title as indicated on the manuscript itself (when a title is indicated). Where available, each entry also contains a citation for its corresponding preservation microfilm version within the Library of Congress's holdings.
Holograph manuscript scores of other composers as well as published musical scores of the works of both SR and of other composers: titles of published works are arranged alphabetically by their title (or, for SR's works only, by their uniform title, if the edition does not carry an English title), or in the case of SR's songs for voice and piano, grouped first under the collective title "[Songs]," then alphabetically by song title (regardless of its language).
