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.
