An Associated Press report posted Monday (1/28) on the Wall Street Journal online states, “The New York Philharmonic will post a new batch of pages from its vast archive online in February. The orchestra will release 520,000 pages of instrumental music parts. It’s already posted over 1,300 orchestral scores online. After that, it will release concert programs, correspondence, business records and annual reports dating back to 1842. The Philharmonic launched the digital archive in 2011 with 300,000 pages from the Leonard Bernstein years, from 1943 to 1970. It’s a multi-year undertaking that will total 8 million pages. The Wall Street Journal reports that nearly 80,000 visitors from 143 countries have gone on the site since 2011. The digital archive is paid for by a $2.4 million grant from the Leon Levy Foundation.”
