New Ysaÿe manuscripts in the Royal Library of Belgium

We have received the following from Kris De Baerdemacker of RISM Belgium and the Koninklijke Bibliotheek van België, Muziekafdeling - Bibliothèque royale de Belgique, Section de la Musique:

The Music Division of the Royal Library of Belgium has recently acquired three Eugène Ysaÿe manuscripts: the autograph score Poème élégiaque arranged for two pianos, the complete score Étude-Poème op. 9 and the autograph score of Petite fantaisie romantique. These manuscripts shed some new light on the existing sources of the fonds Eugène Ysaÿe. Until now, only the violin part of the Etude Poème was known and the only source of the Petite fantaisie romantique was a photocopy.

The manuscripts will be digitized as part of the Eugène Ysaÿe digitization project to make available all printed and manuscript music by Eugène Ysaÿe. As many as 80 scores can already be accessed in the online catalogue of the Royal Library of Belgium and more sources will be added.

In the catalog, type eugène ysaÿe as search term in All fields and select Only digitized collections. In the Document type filter, you can select Printed and handwritten scores. Clicking on the eye icon will take you directly to the digitized document.
