Juilliard Participates in Library of Congress' Music Treasures Consortium Web Site
Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro (The Marriage of Figaro) from the Juilliard Manuscript Collection.
NEW YORK, N.Y.- The Juilliard School announces its participation in the Library of Congress’ Music Treasures Consortium Web site giving access to some of the world's most valued music manuscript and print materials. The Juilliard Manuscript Collection, which is available through this Web site, features a priceless collection of autographs and working manuscripts, sketchbooks, and printed editions with extensive composer markings. Juilliard recently redesigned its manuscript collection Web site making it easier to view and navigate.

The Music Treasures Consortium Web site is the creation of several renowned music libraries and archives in the United States and the United Kingdom. In addition to The Juilliard School’s Lila Acheson Wallace Library, the other consortium members include the British Library, the Eda Kuhn Loeb Music Library at Harvard University, the Library of Congress, the Morgan Library and Museum, and the New York Public Library. The site is hosted by the Library of Congress on its Performing Arts Encyclopedia. The aim of the site is to further music scholarship and research by providing access in one place to digital images of primary sources for performance and study of music.

The items digitized include manuscript scores and first and early editions of a work. Seminal composers such as Johann Sebastian Bach, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Richard Wagner, Claude Debussy, Georges Bizet, Arnold Schoenberg, and Igor Stravinsky, among others, are represented on the site through their original handwritten manuscripts and first editions. The online items range from the 16th century to the 20th century in this initial launch. Researchers can search or browse materials, access bibliographic information about each item, and view digital images of the treasure via each custodial archive's Web site. The site will continue to grow as consortium members add more items.

Initial planning for the consortium was funded by Juilliard Board Chair, Bruce Kovner. The Music Treasures Consortium Advisory Board includes scholars Christoph Wolff, Jeffrey Kallberg, Philip Gossett, and Laurent Pugin.
