Trove of Prokofiev Materials Comes to Columbia!

Columbia will soon become the home of the Serge Prokofiev Foundation’s collection of scores, documents, and ephemera covering the years 1918-1938.

The collection is described in today’s New York Times: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/10/17/arts/music/columbia-to-house-a-trove-of-prokofievs-items.html?_r=0

Presently held by Goldsmiths College, London, and the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris, ownership if the trove will be retained by the Foundation, with the understanding that it may be permanently given to the rare Book & Manuscript Library in five years.  The transfer of materials from London and Paris will begin November 1, and continue into 2014.
