Gloria: Ozalid Manuscript
1945. Signed. STRAVINSKY, Igor. Gloria [from the Mass]. [No place: Copyright 1945 by Igor Stravinsky]. Quarto, eleven leaves of ozalid manuscript. $2500.Pre-publication ozalid (printed) manuscript score of StravinskyÂ’s Gloria, the second movement of the composerÂ’s Mass. Signed and inscribed by Stravinsky to French composer Marcelle de Manziarly: “Pour Marcelle de Manziarly avec mes fidèles pensées. I. Stravinsky, 10 Sept. 1945.Sometime around 1942, after coming across a few Mozart masses in a second-hand music store in Los Angeles, Stravinsky began to contemplate the idea of writing such a work himself. “As I played through these rococo-operatic sweets-of-sin,” Stravinsky wrote, “I knew I had to write a Mass of my own, but a real one” (White, 407). By a “real one,” Stravinsky meant a Roman Catholic Mass that could be used liturgically. The first two movements, Kyrie and Gloria, were written in 1944. The remaining three, Credo, Sanctus, and Agnus Dei were composed in 1947 and 1948. The first performance was given at La Scala in Milan, October 1948. Although the full score was first published by Boosey & Hawkes in 1948, this ozalid manuscript was prepared much earlier, circa 1945. (The ozalid printing process is a method of copying page proofs from paper or film, or in this case, the fair copy of StravinskyÂ’s manuscript score.). See De Lerma M1. Marcelle de Manziarly (1899-1989), to whom Stravinsky has inscribed this copy, is best known for her Sonate pour Notre-Dame de Paris, an orchestral piece inspired by the liberation of the French capital in 1944.Fine condition.
