Rosenthal, Albi, 1914-. Manuscripts in the Albi Rosenthal collection of Monteverdi and the birth of opera, 1579-1966.

Manuscripts in the Albi Rosenthal collection of Monteverdi and the birth of opera, 1579-1966.

Manuscripts in the Albi Rosenthal Collection of Monteverdi and the Birth of Opera consist of letters, writings, and music relating to Monteverdi and others involved in the creation of opera in seventeenth-century Italy. Letters of Monteverdi collaborators Claudio Achillini, Jacopo Peri, Ottavio Rinuccini, and other musicians and writers, addressed to third parties or unidentified recipients, concern Monteverdi's music and other music subjects. Other materials include a volume of holograph music by Alessandro Capece and two manuscripts by unidentified writers giving contempory accounts of music performed in seventeenth-century Urbino. Also present are letters of twentieth-century composers Paul Hindemith, Vincent d'Indy, and Gian Francesco Malipiero, concerning Monteverdi's music. Some items are accompanied by notes of former owners, vendor descriptions, transcriptions, or translations, some possibly by French musicologist Henry Prunières.
