A Donizetti Manuscript in the Zweig Collection



Stefan Zweig's collection of music manuscripts, donated to the British Library in 1986, contains autographs by some of the major canonical composers of European history; from Bach, Mozart and Beethoven through to Wagner and Strauss and Schoenberg. A piece by Gaetano Donizetti (1797-1848) in the collection, which does not seem to have been noticed by scholars of the composer, is the focus of this article. The manuscript is catalogued as being a movement from an unknown string quartet, but closer examination has suggested other possibilities.
