Partita for Harpsichord and Orchestra. Dyeline copy of the score and two copies of the solo part issued by B. Schott's Söhne in Mainz
. Folio. Wrappers. 53 pp. score, 49 pp. solo part. Both the score and one copy of the solo part signed and inscribed by the composer to the Polish- Brazilian pianist and dedicatee of the work, Felicja Blumental (1908-1991) on the first page of both the score and one of the parts, the score with the autograph date Katowice, April 27, [19]72 and the part with the autograph date Lisbon Oct. 19, [19]72. Extensively annotated for performance in both pencil and ballpoint pen, quite likely in Blumental's hand. With additional annotations, corrections and additions in multi- coloured felt-tip pens which appear to be in Penderecki's hand. Wrappers worn and partially separated. First leaf of score torn with some loss to inscription; minor dampstaining; one copy of solo part yellowed and with old plastic tape to spine and corners throughout including outer edge of first leaf.. The Partita was commissioned by the Eastman School of Music where Blumental gave the first performance of the work on February 11, 1972 with Walter Hendl conducting the Eastman Philharmonic; she made a recording of the work in that same year and went on to perform it extensively. We would like to thank Professor Cindy Bylander for her kind assistance in the cataloguing of this item.
