Detroit Symphony Orchestra: Bernard Katz Papers

Accession Number: 
44 linear feet

This collection contains materials from the personal files of keyboard musician and composer Bernard Katz (1925-2004), as donated by his sister-in-law Fern Katz. Katz was always in demand as an accompanist, teacher and arranger, and he worked with many well-known performers and musical groups throughout a 60-year career. The collection includes some published sheet music and a large number of music manuscripts of compositions and arrangements by Katz. It contains the music manuscripts for Katz's major composition, the 63-song cycle of A.E. Housman's "A Shropshire Lad." There are also documents, photographs, memorabilia, and several boxes of AV materials, which have been transferred to the Reuther Library AV Department.

1925-2005; bulk 1975-1999
