[Manuscript and Printed Scores]: Varieties - Piano: A collection of Waltzes and Opera arrangements for Piano
Ant. Diabelli & Comp.) (Wein: Ant. Diabelli & Comp.) [no date - circa 1850-1860]. One bound volume containing 52 manuscript leaves of music on the versos and rectos of each sheet (bound in at the front), and 10 printed scores totaling 116 pages of music. Text in German. Oblong quarto. Measures 13.5" x 10.25". Contemporary half morocco and cloth boards, with "Varieties-Piano" stamped in gilt on the spine. Scuffing to the joints and corners, scattered foxing, a few early wove-paper repairs, about very good. A unique, custom bound collection of popular waltzes and opera arrangements for piano, most likely assembled by a Viennese-based musician in the 1850s. Only one of the manuscript arrangements is signed and dated: "Clementine Steiner ... Marz 1853." Most of the printed scores were published by the famous Viennese music publisher and composer Anton Diabelli in the Euterpe series from the 1840s and 1850s.The manuscript leaves consists of about 17 short pieces and 18 longer works (most of which range from four to 10 pages each). Among the scores in manuscript are piano arrangements from Wagner's Der fliegende Hollander, Rienzi, Lohengrin, and Tannhauser. Also included are arrangements from operas by Verdi, Donizetti, Meyerbeer, and Gounod. The music is neatly written in ink (with one short section in pencil), most likely in two different hands, with the titles, tempos, and lyrics in German. Bound-in after the manuscript scores are 10 printed scores ranging from three to 13 pages each. These include waltzes by Josef Strauss, H.C. Lumbye, Joseph Lanner, and others; and various extracts from operas by Bellini arranged for piano by Anton Diabelli. A unique and pleasing collection of waltzes and operatic melodies from Vienna's golden age.A detailed list of the individual arrangements and printed scores is available upon request.
