Classical Print Music Collection
The Classical Print Music Collections
contains two collections-- the Miriam and Roman Waldman
Music Collection and the Derna DePamphilis Collection.
The Miriam and Roman
Waldman Music Collection is a large collection of Russian
and Polish scores. Mrs. Waldman was a mezzo soprano and the
daughter of a cantor from Johannesburg, South Africa. She
married Roman Waldman, a classical pianist, in Israel. The
collection was donated by Miriam Mandell Waldman in 1995
after a scud missile destroyed the ceiling of a storage
building at her home in Herzliah, Israel.

The Derna DePamphilis
collection includes opera scores (many with her performance
notations) and libretti. The libretti collection consists of
late nineteenth and early twentieth century libretti from
various publishers. The majority of the works are from
Italian composers, but there are also some representations
of French, German and English works.
