Haydn Documents in North America: Library of Congress Collection of Joseph and Michael Haydn Holograph Photographs

Download Article Abstract

The Library of Congress holds a collection of good quality black-and-white photographs of a significant number of important autograph manuscripts by Joseph and Michael Haydn, Johann Georg Albrechtsberger, and a few other composers, taken in 1938.  While, of course, in depth research of the manuscripts most often necessitates travel to Europe to study them first hand, this collection offers North American scholars and performers the opportunity to see clear reproductions of them here in the U.S.
