Charles Griffes Rediscovered
David Plylar discussed the Library's collection of holograph manuscripts by composer Charles Griffes. This includes a "rediscovered" transcription by Griffes of "Les parfums de la nuit" from the Iberia section of "Images" by Claude Debussy; Solungga Liu's performance at the Library of November 4, 2017, is believed to be the world premiere of this transcription. The sheet music for this transcription, prepared by Plylar, is available for free download the Library's "In the Muse" blog.
