Opera sesta. London, Henry Waylett [1741] First edition. The text of The judgment of Paris is by Congreve. Rule Britannia 'Was performed for the first time in the masque of Alfred at Cliefden, the residence of Frederick, Prince of Wales, August 1, 1740. The judgment of Paris was also first performed at Cliefden the same year. When the latter was published in 1741, the music of ""Rule Britannia"" was added as an appendix. The music of Alfred was not published until 1751. The words by James Thomson were published separately three weeks after the performance. ""It is just possible that the ascription to Thomson is incorrect as he had a partner in the writing of the masque, the dramatist David Mallet or Malloch (ca. 1705-1765), but it is thought that the particular song was Thomson's because its sentiment had already appeared in two poems of his and seems to be a personal specialty.""

Achille all-assedio di Troja. / BASILY, FRANCESCO (1767-1850) MLM 35

Scope and Content Note

Original manuscript. 1798. 212 leaves (422 pages) 161/2 x 111/2 cm. The manuscript, written with the greatest care and exactness, offers a very instructive example of the opera seria cultivated in Italy at the close of the 18th century. Basily held two of the most important official positions of the Church in Italy: he was maestro di capella in Loreto and of St. Peter's in Rome. As director of the conservatory in Milan from 1827 till 1837, he was a teacher of Glinka and refused Verdi admission to the conservatory. Achille is a three-act opera following the pattern of the opera seria prior to Gluck. It contains twelve arias, three duettos and two quartettos with fourteen secco and eight accompagnato recitatives and two marches in between. The opera is scored for two flutes, oboes, clarinets, bassoons, horns, trumpets, and the customary strings. There are no chorus numbers and broad finales. A terzetto concludes the first act, a quartetto the second and a quintetto the short third act. The calligraphic make-up and the layout of this manuscript are an astounding achievement in view of the small size of the music paper and the by no means small orchestral apparatus which often required nine staves.

In 1814 Treitschke revised the libretto and Beethoven announced the approaching publication of the opera in its final form. It was now an established success and triumphantly performed in all the capitals of Europe. This is the first edition of the complete orchestral score. It is so rare that its existence was unknown to such authorities as Nottebohm and Thayer. Only 57 copies were subscribed for. The Simrock edition of 1847 has often been accepted as the earliest. The first complete edition of the piano and vocal score was published in 1814 (Hirsch, IV, 318, Nottebohm, p. 71). An edition without the Overture and finales was published in 1810 (Hirsch, II, 37 and 39; Nottebohm, p. 68).

With regard to the vocal pieces, I think we should let one of the singers, who is going to sing for us, first sing an air, then we would do two numbers of the Mass, but with German words. Look about you as to who could do this for us, it need not be exactly a masterpiece, if it only suits the music well. Yours Beethoven

Paris, n.d. An interesting letter to an unidentified poet who had sent him some poems with a request that he set them to music-a request which he had to refuse as his use is too capricious. To illustrate this he tells the story of the tune of the refrain, ""Pauvre soldat"" in the cantata Le cinq mai. After seeking for two months a suitable melody, he gave up the search. Then one day, while walking along the Tiber, he stumbled into the river bed and found himself up to the knees in mud. ""En me relevant je chantai ma phrase si longtemps cherché et le morceau fut fait.""

[Nine songs, opus 32,no. 1]" / BRAHMS, JOHANNES (1833-1897) MLM 144

Scope and Content Note

Wie rafft ich mich auf in der Nacht. Original manuscript. 1864. V. 2 leaves (3 pages) 33 x 251/2 cm. The text is by August, Count of Platen-Hallermund. Brahms probably found the model for this noble song in Schubert's works. It is reminiscent of certain songs for Winterreise such as ""Estarrung"" which expresses a similar mood. ""The opening number of Op. 32, Wie rafft ich mich auf [in der Nacht] is a powerful composition. With its dramatic entry, its tremendous climax, and the wonderful interlocking of the voice and the almost symphonic accompaniment, it rivals the greatest songs of the later Schubert, by whom Brahms is here perceptibly influenced"" (Geiringer, Brahms. His life and work, Oxford, 1947).

Fenaroli, a pupil of Durante and subsequently teacher of Cimarosa and Zingarelli at the Conservatorio della Pietà in Naples, wrote chiefly ecclesiastical works.

Scope and Content Note

Original manuscript. 2 leaves (3 pages) 281/2 x 21 cm. Field, an Irish pianist, was a pupil of Clementi. He spent most of his life in Russia, hence his nickname, ""Russian"" Field.

Violinists particularly have made it their own. The manuscript came from the collection of Prince Dolgorouki and bears his stamp. It was given to him by Robert Müller, Naples, January 26, 1840, and is so inscribed at the end. Bound with this are a manuscript fragment written by Field, a photograph of his portrait by James Lonsdale, an autograph letter signed from W. H. Grattan Flood to Arthur Hill, November 7, 1925, referring to the portrait, and an autograph letter signed from Field to Fétis, February 8, 1832.

Now I take the liberty of asking for your assistance, as it seems to me, Mr. Engel misunderstood me. I sold him my prelude and the fugue in E-Moll for the piano-this was precisely stated in our contract. However, I received a copy of my work in excellent adaptation by Edward Shipper Barnes, for the organ. Would you do me a favour and ask Mr. Engel whether he is going to publish my prelude and the fugue in the original form for the piano keeping the dedication to my friend Leonid Nikolaevich. And if he is going to publish my work, when is he going to do that? I would like very much to have my prelude and the fugue published in the original form for the first time in America. In case Mr. Engel agrees to it, I would like to correct the proof-sheets myself because in Mr. Barnes' printed adaptation several annoying misprints occurred, the list of which I am enclosing herewith. I am very sorry to bother you. Remember me to your wife. Best regards from Olga Nikolaevna. Sincerely yours, A. Glazunoff. The above translation was prepared by Mrs. Maria Volkov.

Azione teatrale per musica del Signr. Cav. Christofano Gluck, al servizio delle MM. LL. II. RR. Rappresento in Vienne nell' anno 1764. . . Gravé par Chambon. In Parigi [Duchesne, 1764] First edition. Signed by the composer. Orchestral score. The text is by Calzabigi. Wotquenne (no. 2112) records only copies with Duchesne's imprint. This copy is one of a few on heavy paper issued for the composer's friends. It was printed at the expense of Count Durazzo. There is no such copy in the British Museum and only one other copy can be traced. Here Gluck carried out his new theories, as far as he had perfected them, made his music everywhere subservient to the action of the drama, finished his airs without the stereotyped "de cape," and never sacrificed the true rendering of a dramatic situation for the sake of attracting attention to his own powers as a composer or of affording a popular singer the opportunity of displaying the flexibility of his voice (Grove). Orfeo ed Euridice is of such importance that the history of operatic reform is commonly said to date from its production.

Messiah. an oratorio in score, as it was originally perform'd. / HANDEL, GEORGE FREDERICK (1685-1759) MLM 474

Scope and Content Note

Composed by Mr. Handel. To which are added his additional alterations. London, Randall & Abell [1767] First edition of the complete score. Inserted, following p. 188, is a leaf of original manuscript (cf. separate entry). Performed publicly for the first time at Neal's Musick Hall, Dublin, April 13, 1742. The first edition of the Messiah, but not containing the complete score, was issued by Walsh in London, ca. 1763. Cf. Schölcher, Life of Handel (London, 1887), p. 272-273. "It is impossible to imagine anything more sublime than the scheme of the work, with its gradual unfolding of the plan of redemption, from the prophecies, becoming more and more definite as the fact of the Nativity is approached, to the ineffable expressiveness of the so-called 'Passion music," the words of which are wholly taken from the Old Testament, and thence to the salvation of mankind through the efficacy of the great Sacrifice" (Oxford). "It was the achievement of a giant inspired - the work of one who, by some extraordinary mental feat, had drawn himself completely out of the world, so that he dwelt - or believed he dwelt - in the pastures of God. What precisely happened was that Handel passed through a superb dream. He was unconscious of the world during that time, unconscious of its press and call; his whole mind was in a trance. He did not leave the house; his man-servant brought him food, and as often as not returned in an hour to the room to find the food untouched, and his master staring into vacancy. When he had completed Part II, with the 'Hallelujah Chorus' his servant found him at the table, tears streaming from his eyes. 'I did think I did see all Heaven before me and the great God himself," he exclaimed. Of a certainty Handel was swept by some influence not of the world during that month - an influence not merely visionary. Never in his life had he experienced the same emotional sense, and he never experienced it again. For twenty-four days he knew those lands reached only by the higher qualities of the soul" (Flower). Hirsch, IV, 774; Wolffheim, II, 1662.

Haydn play & sing his beautiful Canzonetts, (in my youth) in my Dear Father's House at Vauxhall. Oh! what a treat it was! The dear good & respected Haydn was often with us-& express'd much pleasure, when my beloved mother took the upper part (with me) of a Duett of Handels (in his fine Opera of Poro)-She had a fine high soprano voice-& had been (when very young) a scholar of the famous Geminiani. Given into my hands by my dear Mother, Fanny H. Henslowe." François Hippolyte Barthélemon was one of Haydn's closest friends in London. The composer enjoyed the Barthélemon home at Vauxhall which was a favorite refuge from the turmoil of the great metropolis. Barthélemon's wife, the former Mary Young, was a niece of Dr. Arne and a well-known operatic soprano. The daughter Cecilia was a singer, pianist, and composer. These two volumes which include the famous "My mother bids me bind my hair," have the closest possible connection with Haydn's life in London. Hirsch, III, 800.

(this item is missing, as of 08/15/1985)] Translation: Dearest Godchild: When I bore you in my arms after your birth and as I had the pleasure of being your godfather, I implored the Almighty to grant you the most perfect degree of musical talent. My most fervent wish has been fulfilled. Since a very long time I have not heard any music with such enthusiasm as your "La principessa d'Amalfi." It is full of ideas, sublime, full of expression-in short, a masterpiece. I took the warmest part in the great applause they gave you. Do continue, dearest godson, to observe always this genuine style, in order to show the foreigners what Germans are able to do. Keep me, the old boy I am, in your memory. I love you heartily and am, dearest Weigl, your bosom friend and servant. Joseph Haydn. Hirsch, IV, 795; Wotquenne, 1073.

In the meantime it is a source of great consolation to me that I am still able to print all the names indicated by you in your good letter, and I shall also include the name of Sir William Parson and the name of the son of the Duke of Leeds. I am extremely sorry to learn of the death of your dear Father. As soon as the opus is finished and printed, I shall not fail to send all the copies and also a small supply besides. I consider myself very fortunate to be able to show the world how much I was, and still am, esteemed in England. I do not deserve such a fine list of subscribers, but I hope that this work will give satisfaction to everybody, especially when it is produced. Dear Doctor, I cannot adequately express all the thanks that I should give you for the trouble that you have taken on my account. May God bless you! I shall always remember your kindness. I only regret that I cannot show my gratitude in kind. I find no suitable words. But enough of this! Whoever knows of your great talent also knows of your fine character. Fortunate indeed is he who can boast of enjoying your precious friendship. In closing, with the expression of my highest regard and esteem, I can only say, my dear Doctor that I am, and always will be Your most humble and devoted servant. Joseph Haydn.

To M. Delaferté, n. p., January 23,1814. A long letter (four closely written pages). The composer tabulates the amounts he receives from his official appointments and compares these sums with those received by his confrères. He protests against a proposed reduction of his emoluments from a figure of 18,000 to one which he says would bring him only 6,000 francs, less than he received when he was twenty-three, as composer and Master of the Chapel of the Metropole, Paris, which was worth 10,000 francs, when living was much cheaper. This letter has a contemporary ring to it.
