Freedman Fellows Presentation Series: Continuation of the Reilly Digital Catalogue of Mahler's Musical Manuscripts
The next event in our presentation series features Freedman Fellow Stephen Hefling. Currently a Professor of Music at CWRU, Hefling is widely regarded as America’s leading specialist on the composer Gustav Mahler (1860-1911).
In 2006, Hefling was the recipient of an important catalogue of Mahler’s manuscripts. This extensive and detailed catalogue was the result of a lifetime of work by another scholar, Edward R. Reilly. Despite Mahler’s significance as a composer, no such catalogue, print or online, exists.
Join Hefling as he presents an overview of Mahler’s working methods, which are fully documented in this online, searchable database. He will also give insight to future possibilities through a quick electronic visit to the Arnold Schoenberg Center in Vienna.
Co-presenter Stephen Toombs (Research Services Librarian for the Performing Arts and Classics) will describe how library staff assisted Hefling in translating Reilly’s catalogue raisonné of Mahler’s manuscripts into an Oracle database, which will become the foundation of a searchable online catalogue.
This presentation is free to attend. Pizza and beverages will be provided.
WHEN: Friday, January 18 | 12:30pm – 2:00pm
WHERE: Clark Hall, Room 206 (11130 Bellflower Road)
