Series I.B. Other composers, 1800-1995, undated, bulk 1941-1977

Physical Description: 43.0 box(es)

Scope and Content Note

This subseries consists of printed and manuscript scores, sketches, drafts and performance instructions by prominent avant-garde composers in the United States and Europe, organized alphabetically by composer. Tudor's annotations on the scores, along with his worksheets and realizations, show something of the history of the compositions and of Tudor's working relationship with the composers. The range of music, from composers who Tudor knew well and whose music he frequently played to composers who sent unsolicited music he never performed, gives an overview of the major stylistic trends in new music piano repertoire of the 1950s and 1960s. Items of particular interest include Cage's Concert for piano and orchestra, Concerto for prepared piano and chamber orchestra, 4'33", Music of changes, Theatre piece, Variations II, and Winter music; Brown's Folio: December 1952, Four systems, and 25 pages; Bussotti's Pièces de chair II; Feldman's Intersection II and Ixion; Stockhausen's Nr. 7 Klavierstück XI; and Wolff's Duo for pianists I, For pianist, For 6 or 7 players (music for Merce Cunningham), which includes Cage's realizations, and Suite II. Other composers represented by scores include Michael von Biel, Pierre Boulez, Henry Cowell, Albert Fine, Toshi Ichiyanagi,Terry Jennings, Mauricio Kagel, Alvin Lucier, Bo Nilsson, Pauline Oliveros, Stefan Wolpe, and La Monte Young.

Series IV. Correspondence, 1938-1996

Physical Description: 11.0 boxes

Scope and Content Note

This series consists of letters from composers, performers, concert organizers, friends, family and admirers spanning nearly Tudor's entire life. The letters are organized alphabetically. Many of the composers enclose scores (generally not filed in this series), and in some cases include extensive performance instructions. Some of the letters concern concert plans and schedules. Friends send news of themselves, concerts they have seen, and request letters from Tudor, who was notorious for not answering his mail. Tudor's close friends John Cage and Jacqueline Monnier, and his onetime lover M.C. Richards, write extensively regarding their personal lives and collaborations with Tudor. (See also Mary Caroline Richards papers, held by the Getty Research Institute). Young performers and composers ask for advice on their careers. Other correspondents include George Brecht, Sylvano Bussotti, Pierre Boulez, Earle Brown, Cornelius Cardew, Lowell Cross, Morton Feldman, Albert M. Fine, William H. Hawke, Toshi Ichiyanagi, Maurizio Kagel, Bo Nilsson, Pauline Oliveros, Yoko Ono, Nam June Paik, Terry Riley, Jean Rigg, Karlheinz Stockhausen (see also copies of Tudor letters to Stockhausen in the repository, Accession no. 2001.M.26), Bill Viola, Christian Wolff, Stefan and Irma Wolpe, and La Monte Young.
