Scope and arrangement
The Vivian Fine papers, dating from 1929 to 1973, contain score manuscripts and concert programs. The manuscripts hold complete scores as well as works-in-progress for four compositions: Four Pieces for Two Flutes (1930), Duo for Flute and Viola (1961), Missa Brevis (1972), and Solo for Oboe (1929). Also present in the score folders are concert programs for either premieres or performances held within a year or two of the completion of the piece.
The collection also holds a 1965 audio recording of a performance of Three Distinguished Waltzes of the Disgusted Precieux by Erik Satie, featuring Fine on piano, and Fine’s performance of part of Satiana, a ballet by Lucas Hoving.
Inquiries regarding audio materials in the collection may be directed to the Rodgers and Hammerstein Archives of Recorded Sound (firstname.lastname@example.org). Audio materials will be subject to preservation evaluation and migration prior to access.
The collection is arranged alphabetically by composition title.
