Rubbra archive to Boleian
The archive of pianist and composer Edmund Rubbra has been acquired by the Bodleian Library in Oxford. Much of the material in the archive of this important composer has never been accessible to the public or to scholars.
The archive contains personal letters, programmes, talks, lectures and signed presentation copies of scores. There are also letters from many colleague composers, like Vaughan Williams, Bliss, and close friend Finzi. From the latter there are also an almost complete collection of signed scores.
