Hi All, 

Don't know if you are aware of the NY Philharmonic Digital Archive site: 

http://archives.nyphil.org/index.php/about-us 

Here is the piece that led me to this site from a Google search: 

http://archives.nyphil.org/index.php/artifact/5749cc67-077a-47e6-9622-7b718e6a96 4c 

It is the complete score of Mahler IX used in performance by Leonard Bernstein with his notes and markings. 

There is also audio of the actual performance in which he used this score. You can read and listen as you go. 

I picked a couple of random pieces and did a quick search in Scores (there are several search categories). This is what I got: 

Rite of Spring:

Ravel:

Obviously, there's a LOT more. The material can't be downloaded but you can view it all for free. Check it out. 

Be Well, 

Jimmy

Thanks. I also like the V.P. signature; it reminds me of the harmony textbook.

Hi Errikos,

Yes, that book, 20th Century Harmony, is one of my favorites. He (Persichetti) begins and ends the text with that quote:

"Any tone can succeed any other tone, any tone can sound simultaneously with any other tone or tones, and any group of tones can be followed by any other group tones, just as any degree of tension or nuance can occur in any medium under any kind of stress or duration. Succesful projection will depend upon the contextual and formal conditions that prevail, and upon the skill and the soul of the composer."

Love that.

Be Well,

Jimmy

I agree; both about the book and the quote. My friendly suggestion would be to also include the last phrase from it in your signature, as it is that which really transmits Persichetti's intentions. As you have it, it does invite misinterpretation as it is not at all a paraphrase, but a misquotation. It's your signature of course, I'm only mentioning this since you do include the professor's name; I'd just like to see his spirit carried through faithfully. I'm saying all this in the best of dispositions.

Cheers.
