David Tudor Papers, 1943-1989 (bulk 1950-1965).

The David Tudor Papers primarily document Tudor's work as an interpreter of the experimental and avant-garde music of the 1950s and the early 1960s. The collection contains scores from Tudor's repertoire of that period, frequently in pre-publication form, sometimes together with the composer's preliminary sketches. Tudor's work on these scores is represented by a large number of worksheets and realizations prepared for performance. The progress of a given piece may thus at times be traced from the composer's initial ideas and sketches up to Tudor's finished performance. The musical materials are augmented by the presence of letters, primarily from composers presenting or explaining their work, and documentation of performances in the form of programs, posters, recording contracts and reviews.
