Abstract:

The archive is a collection of correspondence, personal and business papers, photographs, writings and other materials which document some of the most significant aspects of twentieth-century music. Through Koussevitzky's work as a conductor and publisher, and his efforts to commission new musical works, he maintained deep ties with many of the finest composers and musicians of the day. These figures are represented in their personal and professional affiliations with the conductor. In addition to serving as a record of Koussevitzky's life and career, the collection extensively chronicles periods in the history of organizations such as the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Berkshire Music Center, the Koussevitzky Music Foundation, and the American International Music Fund. Material in the collection dates from Koussevitzky's years in his native Russia and also contains material created after Koussevitzky's death, reflecting his widow's continuing work with various organizations and projects. Additional series will be created as the rest of the materials in the Koussevitzky archive are processed. Musical compositions commissioned by Serge Koussevitzky are part of the Serge Koussevitzky Music Foundation Collection, and are shelved in ML30.3c, ML30.3c2, ML30.3c3, and ML30.3e2.
