2014 ARSC Preservation Grant Awards

The ARSC Preservation Grants Committee is pleased to announce the recipients of the Grants for Preservation of Classical Music Historical Recordings. The program for these grants was founded in 2004 by Al Schlachtmeyer and the ARSC Board of Directors, to encourage and support the preservation of historically significant sound recordings of Western Art Music by individuals and organizations.

--- Atlanta Symphony Orchestra ---

The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra receives $10,000 for the digital preservation of 32 reel-to-reel tapes from the Robert Shaw Years (1975-1986). Some of Shaw’s signature choral performances are included, as well as recordings of several premieres and commissioned works, which may not have been recorded elsewhere.

--- Dr. Jorge Antunes ---

Dr. Jorge Antunes, retired professor at the University of Brasilia, has been awarded $7800 to conserve and digitize nine reels of paper tape and wire recordings dating from 1940 to 1950 that contain lectures and music by Brazilian composer Hector Villa-Lobos. A wire recording contains two pieces for guitar by Villa-Lobos, for which the scores have been lost. The project will include their reconstruction and publication. The original recordings will be housed at the Brazilian Society for Electroacoustic Music, after the project is completed.

--- Carol Seymour and Richard Drazin ---

Carol Seymour and Richard Drazin receive $800 to make digital copies of privately recorded instantaneous discs of performances by pianist Jerold Frederic. CD copies will be distributed to several interested music libraries.

The grants this year are awarded in memory of long-time Grants Committee Chair Richard Warren Jr., in recognition of a special donation by his wife Mary-Jo Warren.
