The New York Philharmonic has recently launched the Archive portion of their website. This is an ambitious project that will benefit us musicians greatly.
1.3 million pages of archives, including scans of printed programs and Bernstein’s scores with notes.
Performance History – a complete list of all New York Philharmonic performances, searchable by date, composer, etc.
Nineteenth Century Collection
Scores and Parts (digital scans of original scores -including original Mahler works- that are public domain)
Visual Collections – over 27,000 photos
Live Performance Recordings
Working Files of the Philharmonic
Programs – Complete set of programs from 1842 to present
This is an amazing and ambitious project. I look forward to seeing how this progresses.
