Music, 1920-2016 (continued)
Music by Suesse
This subseries includes holograph scores for solo piano and piano-vocal scores for musical comedy and popular songs, along with lead sheets and sketch material. Holograph full scores for orchestral works often include parts, sometimes with performance markings. Though not comprehensive, these works include early juvenilia and continue through Suesse's most prolific time period (1930s-1950s). They also include orchestrations she completed for her 1974 Carnegie Hall concert and 1975 concert at the Newport Music Festival. Annotations and manuscript scores in other hands are identified when known.
Arranged alphabetically by title.
