Description/Abstract

This article details the musical scores donated as gifts to the Syracuse University Libraries on behalf of violinist and Syracuse Professor Louis Krasner. Some of the scores include first editions of Beethoven scores, but the main collection includes rare chamber music and string adaptations of music popular in the eighteenth and nineteenth century. Beethoven himself often protested about these works, claiming pianos are too far away from stringed instruments to be directly adapted.
