Single-owner selection is overture to a double helping of music auctions in London

Books and works on paper

Musical manuscripts, letters and photographs of composers offered at Sotheby’s (25/20/12.5% buyer’s premium) on October 26 comprised the first part only of what was described as “a distinguished private collection” of books that is to be dispersed next year.

The scores in this single-owner collection were led at £180,000 by the dedication copy of Johannes Brahms’ 1864 setting for contralto voice, viola and piano of Emanuel Geibel’s version of a poem by Lope de Vega, Geistiches Wiegenlied.
