BOX 3, 21, 35-101, 179, 225, 258, 301, 357, 366-367, 426-454, 456, 549, 553-557, 591, 599-600, 610, 620 Music Arranged, Edited, or Transcribed by Gunther Schuller, 1905-2012
This subseries represents Schuller's intensive work throughout his life as a student, arranger, performer and conductor, publisher, editor, and scholar, focusing on Western classical music, jazz, and ragtime. Transcriptions of Berg’s Bruchstücke aus Wozzeck, op. 7, and Lied der Lulu, are undated, but are clearly among numerous youthful endeavors. As a young teenager, Schuller wrote down what he heard on recordings, radio broadcasts, and in concerts as a way to study composition techniques, learn repertoire, and further train his ear; presumably, manuscripts here are the fruits of those efforts, and may represent rare evidence of live or broadcast performances. In this subseries is Schuller’s painstaking work from the 1980s and beyond on Charles Mingus’s Epitaph, represented by full scores, parts, and sketches. Schuller’s commitment to jazz composers throughout his career is evident in this subseries, particularly by the many arrangements of works by Duke Ellington, with manuscripts and editions spanning several decades. Arrangements, usually in the form of score and parts, of other popular and jazz figures include works by Hoagy Carmichael, Ornette Coleman, Eric Dolphy, Dizzy Gillespie, and Alec Wilder, among others. Scores and parts also reflect Schuller’s leadership of the New England Ragtime Ensemble and highlight his determination to revive interest in composers Scott Joplin, Joseph Lamb, and others.
If present, the copyright date was used to date the material and does not indicate when Schuller worked on the music.
