A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC (Bound Presentation Score) - Sondheim, Stephen - 1973. 
Privately Printed, New York 1973 - Sondheim, Stephen. Thomas Z. Shepard. A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC. Original Dye-Line Copy of the Autograph Musical Manuscript, Composer's Score, Used in the Recording of the Broadway Cast Album. New York: Privately Printed, . First (and only) printing, presumably limited to a small handful of presentation copies. Bound in green cloth, front and spine with "A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC" lettered in gilt, this magnificent folio (15" by 12" by 1 ¼") is a warmly inscribed gift to Thomas Z. Shepard, Producer of the RCA Broadway cast soundtrack of A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC (and a winner of 12 Grammy Awards for his various Broadway cast recordings, including several by Sondheim) from the Music Preparation team of Mathilde Pincus and Al Miller. Pincus and Miller prepared this A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC score for the Conductor and the Orchestra Musicians via transcribing it into individual parts, with all the music as played originally in the Broadway Production, complete with all significant instrumental cues. Near Fine condition with great eye appeal. This folio is inscribed on the ffep: "Dear Tom: This is our way of saying we love working with you - and our great esteem for everything you write and do. Love Mathilde (and Al)." There is also a later ink inscription from Shepard, gifting this score to a collector. Thomas Z. Shepard's archive is already residing at Yale University; it contains virtually every item related to his prolific career so this is a significant acquisition opportunity. Size: Folio - over 12" - 15" tall [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
