Music Library Microtext
The Bach Collection of the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin, Preussischer Kulturbesitz was unexpectedly and happily enhanced in 2001 when the music archive of the Sing-Akademie was returned from Kiev, where it had been kept during World War II. It is now on loan to the Staatsbibliothek. The primary Bach contents of the archive are Carl Philipp Emanuel’s works, including some of his instrumental compositions. Also included are copies of pieces by Johann Sebastian, as well as autographs by another of his sons, Friedemann. In addition there are works by sons Johann Christoph Friedrich and Johann Christoph and also nephew Johann Ernst. In all there are some 4000 pages on 8 CD-ROMs.

Music Library Microtext
This microfiche set contains the first two parts of the Beethoven Collection of Music Manuscripts from the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin, Preussischer Kulturbesitz which is probably the most important collection of its kind. When completed the set will contain approximately 14,600 pages of autographs and manuscripts containing autograph passages, and 13,500 pages of the composer’s manuscripts. Also included will be 100 works that were moved during World War II for safekeeping, which are currently at the Biblioteka Jagiellonska, Krakow. This includes many of his greatest works, most of his symphonies and piano concertos, the Missa Solemnis and Fidelio, and some of his chamber music.
