Archives and Manuscripts in the Music Department

The department's collections include the complete private archives of eminent composers, as well as the archives of Israeli institutions of music.


Outstanding amongst the archives of pre-state and Israeli composers  are those of Sasha Argov, Paul Ben-Haim, Andre Hadju, Moshe Wilensky, Dov Seltzer, Emanuel Zamir, Mordechai Zeira, Marc Lavry, Daniel Samburski, Mordechai Seter,  Yair Rosenblum, Naomi Shemer and Noam Sheriff.

 

The material found in the archives includes – apart from written and recorded music, in draft and final form – many additional items related to the composition process and the performance, such as correspondence with colleagues and performers, concert recordings, announcements and programs, reviews and photographs.
