BOX 69-82 Music, 1897-1983
This series contains original compositions and arrangements by Luiz Heitor Corrêa de Azevedo, as well as a substantial amount of printed scores by other composers.
Organized as two subseries.
Music by Luiz Heitor Corrêa de Azevedo, 1922-1937
Azevedo composed the majority of the works in this series as an undergraduate student. All music is in his hand in pencil or ink, including corrections and additions. A few ensemble parts contain performance markings likely by others. Some compositions include dedicatees, illustrations on covers by Azevedo and others, and titles decorated with colored pencil or ink designs. Many pieces contain an original composition date on the cover or first page with a later date at the final double barline. Azevedo’s own list of his compositions to 1931 lists such works by the earlier date.
Azevedo originally organized his compositions into six categories: "Canto," secular music for voice with piano or instrumental chamber ensemble accompaniments with words by Brazilian poets; "Música sacra," sacred music for various combinations including solo harmonium, solo voice, multiple voices, and mixed instrumental chamber ensembles; "Piano," works for solo piano and piano four hands; "Violino, outros instrumentos, conjuntos," sacred and secular chamber and orchestral works featuring strings with wind or keyboard instruments; and "Composição esboços, peças abandonadas," musical sketches for completed compositions, incomplete or abandoned compositions, and miscellaneous fragments. Some of the chamber and orchestral works are orchestrated versions of Azevedo’s piano or sacred vocal compositions with the original voice part included. Sketches he originally conceived to be movements of larger works contain marginalia with additional titles in the desired order. This subseries is arranged alphabetically by title. Sketch pages with multiple works are arranged by the first title to appear.
Arranged alphabetically by title.
