Description

Scope and Content

The Eda Rapoport Papers are comprised primarily of music manuscripts authored by Rapoport, many of which are autographs. While most of the manuscripts are undated, they are accompanied by lacquer and aluminum disc recordings of concerts of Rapoport's works given throughout her career. Most of the records are labeled according to the date and piece performed, and span between 1939 and 1966. The collection also features a small selection of printed music, originally intended for commercial distribution. Finally, there are diaries of Rapoport's musical life, 1932-1948, kept by her husband, Boris Rapoport.

The container list for Series I was compiled from the labels on the individual boxes; there is a full list of items available in this series in the Manuscript Card Catalog located in the Rare Book & Manuscript Library.

  • Series I: Original Accession

    This series is comprised of musical scores authored by Rapoport, and includes both manuscript and printed material.

  • Series III: Sound recordings

    This series contains 81 lacquer or aluminum phonograph disc recordings, one recording on open reel audio tape, and 22 digital sound files. Their dates range from 1939 to 1966. The majority are live concert recordings of pieces composed by Eda Rapoport, which were created by or for the radio station WNYC. Others appear to have been recorded in studios in Manhattan and the Bronx.

    Some of the recordings feature Rapoport herself, performing her own compositions on the piano. Other musicians who frequently appear include the violinists Yvette Rudin Bader, Carmela Ippolito, and Harold Kohon; the pianists Esther Ostroff and and Maria Rey; the cellist Alexander Goldfield; and the soprano vocalist Gretchen Ganvoort.

About the Finding Aid / Processing Information

Columbia University Libraries, Rare Book and Manuscript Library

Processing Information

Processed by Megan Darlington, August 2012.

The collection originally included 92 lacquer or aluminum discs, which were previously stored in nine albums. In 2008, the discs in Album 5 were removed for digitization. Their digitized contents can be accessed in the reading room at the Rare Book and Manuscript Library.

Celeste Brewer reprocessed materials in Series III in February 2020, in preparation for digitization. The lacquer and aluminum discs had previously been stored in eight albums with paper sleeves. The sleeves had become acidified and were no longer strong enough to support the weight of the discs without tearing. The discs were assigned numbers in a sequence reflecting the order in which they were found in the albums, and rehoused in acid-free phonograph storage envelopes. Two discs, 62 and 65, which are delaminating, were moved to Box 14 for flat storage.
