The Juilliard Manuscript Collection Website

View this amazing collection of rare, composer-edited sheet music from the Julliard School here: The Juilliard Manuscript Collection Website.

“In 2006 Juilliard received a trove of precious music manuscripts from the billionaire collector and financier Bruce Kovner. The collection includes autograph scores, sketches, composer-emended proofs and first editions of major works by Mozart, Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Schumann, Chopin, Schubert, Liszt, Ravel, Stravinsky, Copland and other masters of the classical music canon. Many of the manuscripts had been unavailable for generations. Among the items are the printer’s manuscript of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, complete with Beethoven’s hand-written amendments, that was used for the first performance in Vienna in 1824; Mozart’s autograph of the wind parts of the final scene of The Marriage of Figaro; Beethoven’s arrangement of his monumental Große Fuge for piano four hands; Schumann’s working draft of his Symphony No. 2; and manuscripts of Brahms’s Symphony No. 2 and Piano Concerto No. 2. The entire collection has since been digitized and can be viewed online.[10]”  Source:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juilliard_School

What do you think? Read the Commission’s Report and get a glimpse of what may be on the horizion for Pennsylvania universities.

How do you think the November 14, 2012
Governor’s Advisory Commission on Postsecondary Education
will affect our local universities especially as concerns the “consolidation and elimination of programs and/or
institutions and their locations in the Commonwealth“,

and assessment:
“The assessment should include all sectors of postsecondary education in the Commonwealth including delivery at the Career and Technical Centers, Community Colleges, Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE), private and state-relatedinstitutions.”?Are we trying to save Pennsylvania money, or are we trying to reorganize our local schools to tighten state’s control? I do not teach music because I love money, but because I appreciate the opportunity to be part of the development of my students‘ music, thus influencing many other parts of life like worldview, theology, family, and values. With this trust comes a responsibility to be honest to my students and to my God, regardless of the money I make (or do not make) in the process. In my teaching experience, small, or individual lessons are best for fine arts, but small classes are usually under attack with consolidation. Also, as an independent teacher, I have the freedom to choose curriculum tailored to a student’s needs. With assessments and funding requirements for the above mentioned types of schools, I believe that freedom may be crimped for teachers in the average Pennsylvania university.  Finally, If universities consolidate classes, students may find themselves driving 50 miles, or more, instead of walking to class.  The personal financial strain may prove too much for far too many local students, forcing them to discontinue their education or find alternative solutions for post secondary education.

Read this and let me know what you think!
