Over 60 pages of musical drafts by the German prodigy

Very early autograph musical manuscripts in pencil, totaling over sixty pages, ranging in size from 10.5 x 14 to 12 x 16, one page dated 1900. Remarkable lengthy drafts for quartets, and a work for orchestra and choir. One is a 26–page musically lined booklet, signed in the upper right of the first page, “Furtwangler,” and signed again on an interior page, “W. Furtwangler, 1900.” In overall very good condition, with various tears, chips, and small areas of paper loss to edges of several pages, and scattered soiling. In 1900, Furtwangler was just fourteen years old; his earliest known composition was written at age seven. He started lessons in music theory in 1897 with the Munich composer and composition teacher Anton Beer-Walbrunn, continuing later with Joseph von Rheinberger and Max von Schillings. A comprehensive sampling of pieces from Furtwangler’s musical development. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
