BOX 10-34 MAPCASE 6 Writings, Scholarly Presentations, and Teaching Material, 1924-1988
This series contains Azevedo’s drafts and final versions of writings, speeches, lectures, conference presentations, teaching materials, and radio program scripts. Related correspondence with publication editors, colleagues, and collaborators is present throughout. Materials related to Azevedo’s teaching at the Institute des Hautes Études de l’Amérique latine de l’Université de Paris (IHEAL) are present in both the Writings and Teaching Materials subseries as originally filed.
Organized as three subseries.
Writings, 1930-1988
Luiz Heitor Corrêa de Azevedo originally described these materials in Portuguese as "Escritos." This subseries contains annotated drafts, notes, final typescripts, and published versions of Azevedo’s articles, concert and music recording reviews, conference lectures, program notes, dictionary and encyclopedia entries, lesson transcripts, radio program scripts, and posters. There are two file groups: the majority of Azevedo’s files are a chronological set of materials followed by a small alphabetical set of French, Brazilian, and Austrian newspaper and magazine clippings; proofs; and off-prints of journal articles, encyclopedia entries, and dictionary entries.
The chronological files contain topics and titles assigned by Luiz Heitor or Violeta. Files from the 1950s through the 1980s contain writings and Azevedo’s correspondence with editors related to works such as Grove’s Dictionary of Music and Musicians, Die Musik in Geschichte und Gegenwart, and Perspectives in Musicology. The chronological files also contain documents related to embassies and consulates in Milan and Cuba, Radiodiffusion-Télévision Française, Sociedade Brasileira de Musicologia, and Société française de musicologie. Research and review topics include composers Sigismund Neukomm, Heitor Villa-Lobos, Renato Almeida, Carlos Gomes, Francisco Mignone, and Luciano Gallet. Writings related to conference papers and presentations, originally described by Azevedo in Portuguese as "Conferências," appear throughout the chronological files.
Documents of note in the chronological files include both clean and annotated typescript bibliographies of Luiz Heitor’s complete writings, including juvenilia and musical compositions, in a 1986 file; radio program scripts, drafts, and musical examples for Azevedo’s 1944 broadcast series Ondas Musicais in Rio de Janeiro; and an annotated typescript of Azevedo’s 1956 UNESCO Radio interview with Heitor Villa-Lobos which corresponds with photographs of the event in the Photographs, Negatives, and Iconography Series.
Arranged chronologically or alphabetically.
