BOX 1-84, 91 Music, 1905-1957
The Music series consists of two subseries. The first, Manuscripts, consists of holograph scores and sketches, copyist scores, photocopied scores and parts, libretti, as well as a small amount of printed music. This series also contains Korngold's arrangements of other composers' works, such as Orpheus in the Underworld by Jacques Offenbach (1819-1880) and Die Fledermaus and (Rosalinda) by Johann Strauss (1825-1899). The second subseries, Music by Others, contains printed music by Eric Zeisl inscribed to Korngold. It includes the piano-vocal score of one of Zeisl's major works, Requiem Ebraico.
Manuscripts, 1905-1957
The Manuscripts subseries spans Korngold's lifetime compositional output and consists of holograph scores and sketches, copyist scores, photocopied scores and parts, and libretti, as well as a small amount of printed music. Many contain holograph annotations, sketches, or have other materials laid in. This series also contains Korngold's arrangements of other composers' works. Many folders contain more than one item. In such cases, items are listed individually. The word "reel" in composition titles does not refer to microfilm reels; rather, "reel" refers to a film reel number. The film reel number corresponded to sections of a conductor score used to record a film soundtrack. Cross references are provided for works with alternate titles or titles translated into another language. For example, Helen Goes to Troy was the United States production of La Belle Hélène . Unless otherwise noted, works are undated. Printed works were published by B. Schott Sӧhne unless otherwise stated.
To preserve the originals, music manuscripts in boxes 1-38 are served on microfilm. These materials are cataloged as Microfilm 2008/20,001 .
