Biographical Note

Composer Morton Feldman (1926-1987) was best known for his association with the New York School of experimentalist musicians, including composers John Cage, Christian Wolff, and Earle Brown, and pianist David Tudor. In addition to composing approximately 150 works, Feldman also wrote more than three dozen articles about various aspects of music and art.

Feldman was a member of the music department faculty at the State University of New York at Buffalo from 1972-1987. During those years he served as Slee Professor of Music 1972-1973, Edgar Varèse Professor 1975-1987, and Director of the Center of the Creative and Performing Arts, 1976-1980. He was also responsible for creating the June in Buffalo festival of contemporary music in 1975.


Scope and Content Note

The Morton Feldman Papers consist predominantly of secondary materials, including eight boxes of programs and clippings, two boxes of Feldman's published writings, and another box of writings for or about Feldman. Other than a small number of musical fragments, it contains none of Feldman's scores, printed or manuscript.

There are two prose manuscripts and six typescripts by Feldman in the collection. These are primarily brief (the longest is 5 leaves) and fragmentary in nature. Feldman's published writings are represented by thirty-two articles in the collection. The list includes articles translated into German, Swedish, Italian, and French. Eighteen interviews and conversations with Feldman are also included in the collection, almost all of them available in published versions.

The correspondence in the Morton Feldman Papers reveals little of a personal nature about Feldman. The letters in the fifty-three folders of General Correspondence include letters of appreciation from students, invitations to appear at functions, letters regarding details of upcoming events, and letters of thanks from presenters of concerts and lectures.

There are only three letters from Feldman included in the General Correspondence. They are filed by name of the addressee. One of these, a photocopy of a letter sent to soprano Joan La Barbara along with the score of Feldman's composition Three Voices, is perhaps the only letter in the collection with any musical content. Feldman's other two letters were to University at Buffalo colleagues, James Coover and Maria Runfola.

There are an additional eleven folders of correspondence related to awards received by Feldman, commissions, contracts for appearances, and royalty statements. Feldman served as a consultant for the Mark Rothko Foundation's Mark Rothko Fund, which granted funds to older artists, writers, and musicians. Correspondence received from applicants with backgrounds in music was sent to Feldman for his recommendation. The correspondence is addressed to the treasurer of the foundation, Bernard J. Reis.

There are more than five hundred programs and announcements in the collection and approximately four hundred clippings and reviews. Together these provide substantial documentation of Feldman's career and the critical reception of his music. The collection of sixty-one photographs contains candid snapshots, as well as some formal portraits of Feldman taken while he was at Darmstadt in 1986.

The principal collection of material related to the life and career of Morton Feldman is located at the Paul Sacher Stiftung in Basel, Switzerland.

The collection of fifty-four photographs includes candid snapshots and more formal portraits. Others in the photographs include Barbara Monk Feldman, Nils Vigeland, Eberhard Blum, the members of the Kronos Quartet, and John Adams. More than a dozen of the shots were taken by Rolf Hanns at Darmstadt in 1986. Eight of the photographs (47-54) were printed from negatives received with the collection. An additional two portraits by Rolf Hanns and five photographs of scenes from the first performance of Feldman's Neither in June 1977 in Rome are housed in the Oversize Box at the end of the collection.

The photographs have been roughly organized by size and then chronologically

Collection of 79 works by Morton Feldman in either score or part formats (72 scores; 7 sets of parts). All but one item are ink manuscripts on vellum. These served as the masters that Feldman submitted to C. F. Peters and Peters published directly from these masters. Almost all of the manuscripts are in Morton Feldman's hand, except for two scores copied by John Cage and three items in the hand of a music copyist.

A digitized collection of 56 images of Feldman and associates taken by percussionist Jan Williams during European concert tours in 1974, 1977, and 1979.
