Description/Abstract

The Wetherill collection contains many reductions, adaptations, and arrangements of music by the major figures of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. There are several bound collections of music for piano and violin based on "favorite opera melodies." There are also, of course, many works by the masters themselves. The true worth of this collection, however, is not to be found in anyone rara avis, but rather in the quality of the whole as representative of the chamber music of its time.
