The Ricardo Vines Piano Music Collection at the University of Colorado at Boulder.
After Vines died in 1943, his music collection--including manuscripts, autograph dedications, and inscriptions--was scattered by his family. The bulk of his library, 836 pieces, was purchased by the University of Colorado at Boulder (CU) in the mid-1950s. Unfortunately, after the purchase it was divided up as a "seed" collection. The purchase has recently been reconstructed as the Ricardo Vines Piano Music Collection and is now located in the Howard B. Waltz Music Library. This article provides a brief biographical sketch of Vines, describes the history and reconstruction of the collection, and highlights its contents. A list of selected holdings in the collection describes some of the most significant pieces individually, including those bearing inscriptions, dedications, and the pianist's markings. Finally, a listing of all the composers represented in the collection is provided.
BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH OF RICARDO VINES
Ricardo Javier Vines y Garcia Roda was born in Lerida (Lleida), Spain, on 5 February 1875. In 1885, he became a student of Juan Bautista Pujol in Barcelona. At the suggestion of Isaac Albeniz, his mother brought him to Paris to study in 1887, where he enrolled first as an auditor, then as a full-fledged participant in the Paris Conservatory class of Charles-Wilfred Beriot. (2) There he met Maurice Ravel. The young composers, who were born the same year, may have first met through their Spanish-speaking mothers. (3)
Vines quickly became one of the foremost members of Beriot's class, and was invited to perform his teacher's own works--including a February 1893 performance of a piece he identifies only as "the second movement of de Beriot's concerto," with the composer playing the orchestral reduction. (4) This was probably the Second Piano Concerto, op. 46, judging from a heavily fingered copy of an early publication of that work in the University of Colorado collection. (5) In March 1895, Vines also performed Beriot's Sonata for Two Pianos, op. 61, at the Salle Pleyel with Beriot as the other pianist. (6)
Vines was an autodidact--probably a consequence of a pedagogical system in which young students were given little other than a musical education at an institution like the Paris Conservatory. He taught himself English (specifically to be able to read Poe in the original), mathematics, astrology, palmistry, and any number of other branches of the "occult sciences." He also read extensively from the literature of the time, ranging from the symbolists including Maurice Maeterlinck, Georges Rodenbach, and Stephane Mallarme; to the decadents Jules-Amedee Barbey d'Aurevilly, Joris-Karl Huysmans, and Auguste, comte de Villiers de l'Isle-Adam; to Catholic mystics like Ernest Hello; and utterly unclassifiable authors such as the Rosicrucian Catholic Josephin Peladan. Vines shared many of his books--notably Aloysius Bertrand's cycle of prose poems Gaspard de la nuit and the works of Poe and Baudelaire--with his good friend "Mauricio" Ravel.
In company with Ravel, reading two-piano or four-hand arrangements of orchestral scores, Vines discovered new music from the end of the nineteenth century, including the works of the modern Russian composers and the symphonic poems of Cesar Franck. Their musical explorations extended to Emmanuel Chabrier (whose two-piano Valses romantiques they played privately for the composer), Camille Saint-Saens, and others.
Vines premiered Ravel's first piano works, including the Menuet antique (dedicated to Vines), Pavane pour une infante defunte, Serenade grotesque, and Jeux d'eau. There is little question that Vines's brand of pianism, dependent on his exquisite pedaling and command of color, had a tremendous influence on Ravel's development as a composer. Around 1900. Vines became acquainted with Debussy--a friendship that ultimately was to outlast that with Ravel (7)--and seems to have worked a similar magic on Debussy's pianistic style. Vines's influence can be discerned in Debussy's move from the neoclassicism of Pour le piano (premiered by Vines in 1902, but composed before they had met) to the impressionism of Estampes (premiered by Vines in 1904). (8)
Vines quickly found himself much in demand as a pianist for new music, with numerous works dedicated to him over his career, and with premieres of many more to his credit. The number of composer signatures in the Vines Collection testifies to how anxious composers were to give him their works to perform. As Brody noted, a performance by Vines almost ensured a work's acceptance and success. (9) At times Vines's musicality even outshone the great works he premiered. In 1904, the Monde musical critic reported after the premiere of Debussy's Estampes, "One certainly has the right to believe that the three little piano pieces presented by M. Vines--with such mastery and ability--are of very secondary interest." (10) Among his other new-music interests, Vines was instrumental in the public performance of the piano music of Erik Satie, resulting in a 1913 comment that "M. Vines is the ideal pianist for the cult of modernism." (11)
According to the programs of the Societe Nationale and the Societe Musicale Independante, during the years 1898-1930 Vines gave Paris performances--many of them premieres--of works by numerous composers, including Albeniz, Balakirev, Borodin, Castelnuovo-Tedesco, Chausson, Debussy, Dukas, Falla, Faure, Glazunov, Granados, Lalo, Musorgsky, Poulenc, Ravel, Rimsky-Korsakov, Rodrigo, Satie, Tailleferre, and Turina. (12) Many of these composers are represented in the CU collection.
Beyond Paris, Ricardo Vines performed in London and Brussels, spreading the gospel of the modern French music of the time in programs calculated to showcase what he considered the best of French music. (13) His strong affinity for the music of the Russian school led to--and was fed by--a tour of Russia in 1900. In the years immediately following he brought the latest compositions of Balakirev, Lyapunov, and other modern Russian composers back to Paris. He also gave the Paris premiere of Musorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition in 1905.
Beginning in 1914, Vines was often away from Paris. He spent much of his time at Bagneres de Bigorre in the south of France. (14) In that same year, the Societe Musicale Independante commissioned Vines to perform French repertory in Berlin. He also began a series of trips to Spain, including annual returns to his hometown of Lerida, and tours of Spain during the years of World War I.
In 1920 and 1924 Vines toured South America, cultivating connections with composers of the nascent national schools in Argentina, Uruguay, and Chile. (15) His first programs in Buenos Aires in 1920--a series of seven for which he had been contracted before he left Paris--provided a survey of keyboard literature, featuring 212 pieces by some fifty composers. He ended up staying on, in part to recoup expenses that had not yet been fully covered by his initial series of concerts. He subsequently performed throughout the provinces of northern Argentina as well as in Montevideo, Uruguay. His second tour to Argentina in 1924 included numerous collaborations with Argentine musicians and performances of works by Argentine composers.
Between these South American tours, Vines made a point of performing South American compositions in Europe. In 1926, he performed an all-South American program in Paris. In the years 1925-29 he programmed works by Armando Chimenti, Manuel Gomez Carillo, Vicente Forte, Alberto Williams, and other South American composers in concerts throughout France and Italy--apparently performing to small audiences and little applause.
He traveled to Buenos Aires again in 1930 and stayed in South America for five years, visiting Chile (1932-33) and Uruguay (1931 and 1934). He returned to Paris in the spring of 1935. The Vines Collection includes numerous piano works that Vines learned and performed during these sojourns.
Ricardo Vines's greatest role was as a champion of the works of his contemporaries and as the pianist whose playing style inspired many of the most important works of pianistic "impressionism." As a teacher, he also left an important legacy, educating a younger generation in the aesthetics of his own pianism. His most famous pupils were the great French pianist Marcelle Meyer (whose recordings of French repertoire from the second quarter of the twentieth century tell us much about the performing tradition of these works as communicated to her by Vines) and the composers Francis Poulenc (who credited Vines especially for his mastery of the pedal) and Joaquin Nin.
Vines continued his concert career after his return to Paris in 1936, but seems to have gone into a professional decline, the details of which are elusive. (16) He returned to Barcelona but could not re-enter France due to the Spanish Civil War. According to his niece Elvira Vines, his final years were "very painful for him." (17) Unable to make a living in his war-ravaged homeland, he died in poverty on 29 April 1943. (18)
Vines made only a few recordings late in his career. The 1994 compact disc Ricardo Vines and Francis Plante (Opal CD 9857) includes most of his discography--recordings made in 1930 and 1936. This recording includes Vines performing sixteen short works by Scarlatti and Gluck, as well as pieces by Borodin, Albeniz, Turina, Debussy, Manuel Blancafort, Giovanni Troiani, Lopez-Buchardo, and Pedro Humberto Allende.
RECONSTRUCTION OF THE RICARDO VINES PIANO MUSIC COLLECTION
Several years ago, curiosity about Vines grew after staff and students at the Waltz Music Library repeatedly stumbled upon pieces in the circulating stacks with the unique stamp "Bibliotheque musicale Ricardo Vines." Interest increased after a graduate piano student found a manuscript reduction for two pianos of a concertino by Jeanne Herscher-Clement bearing this stamp. A cursory survey of the library's holdings in the Library of Congress's M20s classifications revealed a significant number of scores from the pianist's library, with several bearing inscriptions by the composers. These scores obviously needed to be identified and moved to the library's special collections. But how big was the collection and what did it contain?
Few of the scores had cataloging records that had been retrospectively converted. Also, at the time, no information about the source of this music could be found. Little progress was made for a few years until two boxes surfaced that contained computer punch cards labeled "Vines, Music Library." Punch card readers are now considered antiques, and converting the information to a usable format was considered too expensive. Besides, the numerical cataloging schema remained a puzzle, and the cards were clearly out of order.
A few more years passed before the authors decided to attempt reconstruction of the collection. A bright graduate student was hired, and after only a few hours, the numerical cataloging code was broken. (19) Because the punched data was also typed at the top of each card, the student simply transcribed the data.
Working both with the cards and card catalog, the student completed a first draft bibliography of the collection in about two and a half months. Examining the music was also necessary, because cards for some pieces that are not part of the collection had also been placed in the boxes. Vines's stamp, which he seemed to have used consistently, was very helpful. The collection, which had been estimated at around four hundred pieces, turned out to number over eight hundred.
The collection's provenance, however, remained a mystery. How did the Catalan pianist's music wind up in Boulder, Colorado? The date and cost were found in a memo of 20 October 1954 authorizing the purchase of the collection for $275. (20) One possible motivation for splitting up the music and putting the collection into circulation was also found; 1954 was the year when the College of Music began offering its D.M.A. degree. (21) No other information was given in the memo, and its recipient, Warner Imig, a former dean of the college, did not recall the collection or the details of its purchase. Nevertheless, Imig suggested that retired chair of the piano department Storm Bull might recall something about the purchase. (22) Bull, despite being eighty-nine years old, had a mind like a steel trap. Indeed, he was able to help.
Bull recalled that he had been the person who had seen the collection advertised in a dealer's catalog and had instigated its purchase. Unfortunately, he did not recall the dealer's name. He also remembered that a second lot of Vines's music, primarily manuscripts, was offered in the same catalog. The university was unable to purchase this second lot because of the cost. Further, Bull related that the number of lesser-known composers represented in the collection, specifically those from South America, was the impetus for him to start compiling his three-volume Index to Biographies of Contemporary Composers during his tenure at Boulder. (23)
To date, the dealer has still not been identified, but two main possibilities exist. Based upon clues in the writings of Elaine Brody and Esperanza Berrocal, the music was possibly offered by the Parisian antiquarian dealer Pierre Beres. Brody mentions a special list issued in New York which "included the portion of Vines's library that was sold in the United States." (24) Berrocal also mentions Beres, stating that "The French auctioneers Beres and Griland also bought part of Vines's scores" from the family. (25) Collector Hans Moldenhauer (1906-1987) bought his Vines manuscripts from Samuel Orlinick of the Scientific Library Service in fall 1954. (26) This may have been the lot of manuscripts that Bull recalled, and the date of Moldenhauer's purchase, fall 1954, matches that of the CU collection. Moldenhauer's collection is now held primarily by Harvard University and the Library of Congress. (27)
In addition to the manuscripts from Vines's library in the Moldenhauer Archives, there are also two other libraries holding scores once owned by the pianist. The University of Delaware holds a set of thirty-five manuscripts bearing Vines's stamp. Information regarding the provenance of these manuscripts is not currently available. (28) In comparison, the Hans Moldenhauer Archives includes a total of twenty-eight manuscripts from Vines's library. There is also a set of ten scores (including three manuscripts) located in Lerida in an archive dedicated to Vines at the Auditori Municipal Enric Granados. The family reportedly donated these after Vines's death. (29) With the exception of a notebook at the Library of Congress that was shared by Granados and Vines, none of these collections contain manuscripts by major composers. (30)
The next steps in the reconstruction of the Boulder collection involved cataloging the newly identified scores and checking the holdings of those titles to determine if the items in the collection are rare or widely held. A total of nearly two hundred of the newly identified scores required original cataloging. Online records for all titles in the Vines Collection are now both in CU's local catalog (Chinook, http://libraries.colorado.edu) and in OCLC's WorldCat union catalog. About half of the titles are reported in WorldCat as unique to CU Boulder.
OVERVIEW OF THE COLLECTION
The Ricardo Vines Piano Music Collection at the University of Colorado includes 836 pieces of sheet music accumulated by the pianist from the 1880s through the 1930s, and with few exceptions containing music actually composed and published during those years. Only two of these items are manuscripts. The first is the Herscher-Clement concertino mentioned above. The second, the Berceuse by Armande de Polignac, is a combination of printed and manuscript music, with the handwritten sections likely the work of the composer. (31)
An overview of the contents of the collection gives an idea of the wide spectrum of music from the period that has failed to enter the standard repertoire. While it is easy to see why many of these pieces have been neglected, there are also many treasures to be found. Vines's tastes and circle of acquaintances were broad, but his sympathies seemed to lie strongly with music that was stylistically within the French orbit. Outside the large number of French scores in the collection, it includes music of many Russian, Spanish, and South American composers, along with scores from Hungary, Holland, Italy, Belgium, and even Greece. (32) In the case of Russian composers, Vines was under their influence in his young years, and later served as a kind of ambassador bringing new Russian piano music to Paris. Two important South American composers who had studied in France--Alberto Williams and Pedro Humberto Allende--may have helped Vines establish himself in South America and, in turn, been helped by his performances of their music. (33)
The vast majority of the scores in the collection are clean, with no markings. Many of these also bear a stamp (usually "Hommage des editeurs" or "Hommage de l'auteur") indicating that the copy was given to the pianist for perusal or to encourage his interest. In most cases, it would seem that Vines was not interested. The significant number of items that have markings in Vines's hand were evidently performed or at least studied with the intent of performance. Of course, many works that Vines premiered were published only after the first performance, and in those cases the presentation copies given to Vines--many signed by the composers--bear no markings in his hand.
It might seem remarkable that Vines's markings are still clearly identifiable after nearly fifty years in the Waltz Library circulating collection. Very likely the lack of records in the online catalog coupled with the obscurity of much of the literature combined to preserve most of them. Vines's markings are most commonly, and not surprisingly, fingerings. In his younger years, fingerings are fairly systematic: a number for every note in a passage. Later, he limited himself to especially tricky matters or to showing special finger substitutions to achieve contrapuntal connections or superior legato. Fingerings appear in blue crayon or blue pencil as well as in various dark gray and black pencils. Sometimes a printed marking has been altered by hand, including marginal emendations in some scores that may well indicate the composer's input. There are also corrections of notes, usually written out with the French names, and accidentals. Such corrections were occasionally done in ink, possibly indicating direct input from the composer. Vines also marked some reworkings of complicated passages.
Several of the pieces bear Vines's signature. Others in the collection were inscribed or dedicated to Vines in the composers' hands. While the majority of these names are obscure, some significant autographs are present in the collection. A few of the most interesting and significant inscriptions include those by Michel-Dimitri Calvocoressi, Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco, Joaquin Turina, and Alberto Williams.
The following sections point out some highlights of the collection, beginning with materials dating from Vines's years as a student, followed by a brief description of the few works of standard repertoire in the collection, and continuing through his commitment to new music from France, Russia, Italy, and South America.
Scores from Vines's Student Years
The collection includes a number of scores that Vines studied in his youth, including the Suite polonaise, op. 51, by Charles-Marie Widor and La triomphale, op. 192, by Edward Wolff, as well as works by Moriz Rosenthal, Theodor Leschetizky, Jacques Blumenthal, Felix Blumenfeld, and others. In addition, there are thirty-five scores of works written by Vines's conservatory professor, Charles-Wilfrid Beriot.
Of particular interest are the piano scores to Beriot's three piano concertos. Concerto no. 1, op. 40, bears numerous markings, some in Spanish, and handwritten indications to facilitate performance of the piece as a piano solo. There are two scores to the Second Concerto, op. 46, both published by Hamelle. One represents an earlier printing, carefully and neatly fingered in every passage of even moderate difficulty. It also has a number of corrections, a few interpretive marks in Beriot's hand, and one cut indicated on pages 62-63. The second score of the concerto bears Vines's signature on the cover, but is otherwise unmarked. The two-piano version of this work was performed on Vines's official debut recital, 21 February 1895 at the Salle Pleyel. Beriot was supposed to have performed the orchestra reduction, but had to cancel at the last minute. Vines's diary mentions how he had to make the announcement of the substitution of another accompanist from the stage. (34) The score to the Third Piano Concerto, op. 71, includes fingerings and hand redistributions in blue pencil in Vines's hand. The professor, in his efforts to help his young protege's career, invited Saint-Saens to his home to meet and hear Vines. Beriot accompanied Vines in a performance of the work, after which Saint-Saens is reported to have said, "He plays better than Saint-Saens. Such strength, such brio and yet so much delicacy." (35)
Among the other Beriot treasures in the collection is Vines's copy of the first volume of a method, Mecanisme et style: Le vade-mecum du pianiste, Beriot's opus 66. The book is an important document of historical pedagogy, containing all possible permutations of five-finger patterns, plus scale fingerings, scales in thirds, sixths, etc. Vines's diary entry for 21 December 1888 includes this report on a class: "I played some of the 'mecanisme' and Monsieur de Beriot told the students that I would surpass them all." (36)
The Vines Collection's copy of Beriot's Sonata for Two Pianos, op. 61, is relatively clean, with only a single interpretive marking on page 19 of the piano II part. Nonetheless, the piece was important in Beriot's early promotion of his student. On 1 March 1895, Vines mentioned in his diary that Beriot "wrote to me to tell me that the Pleyel Company had asked him if we could perform his sonata for two pianos together at a matinee at the Salle Pleyel, on Sunday, March 7...." (37)
Many of the other Beriot scores in the collection--mostly pedagogical salon music, such as the Allegretto, op. 35, A la Espagnola, op. 60, and 4 morceaux a rythmes rompus, op. 56--have markings in both Vines's and Beriot's hands. Beriot's infrequent markings, often shaky, are generally interpretive, graphically imploring the student to crescendo or slow down.
Beriot assigned virtuoso pieces to Vines, evidently to sharpen his technique and probably also to give him a chance to show off for the impressionable wealthy hostesses of the Paris salons (Vines had begun contributing to the support of his family at the age of thirteen by performing for pay in people's homes (38)). The collection includes Edward Wolff's La triomphale, op. 192, with a handwritten date of 1889 on the cover. This work was part of what Brody calls "a diet of virtuoso piano music" being fed to Vines by Beriot. (39)
Julius Schulhoff's Sonata, op. 37, of which there are two editions in the collection, is a similar work. The edition published by Gerard is extensively fingered by Vines in the first movement only, while the one issued by Kybourtz (from the same plates) includes markings throughout in Beriot's hand. This work was one the twelve-year-old Vines brought with him when he came to Paris, according to his diary for 14 October 1887. He played the piece in an audition for a M. Fissot, who consequently gave him a letter of introduction to Beriot. (40) One can imagine that the new teacher, seeing the heavily marked score, requested that his new student obtain a clean copy.
As Vines rapidly progressed, he began competing for the Paris Conservatoire's coveted First Prize. After being passed over a couple of times, he finally succeeded in 1894 at the age of nineteen. The required work for the male students that year was Saint-Saens's Theme and Variations, op. 97. (41) Vines's score, with extensive markings in his and Beriot's hands, resides in the collection.
Vines's 1895 Salle Pleyel debut program was ambitious and lengthy, taking two-and-a-half hours to perform. He wrote in his diary "I played by heart and had no memory lapses.... There were only 14 pieces, but with the first two [Beethoven's Sonata "Appassionata" and Schumann's Carnaval] and the concerto [Beriot's second], it was more like 30!" (42) The collection includes Vines's marked scores not only of the concerto, but also of the following works from the program: Theodore Dubois's "Les myrtilles" from Poemes sylvestres, Moritz Moszkowski's "Tarantelle," op. 27, no. 2, and Theodore Ritter's transcription of the Scherzo from Mendelssohn's Midsummer Night's Dream.
Works by Famous Composers
Among the works in the collection that we would classify today as standard repertoire, there are a few of particular interest because of the extensive markings in Vines's hand. With the exception of Cesar Franck, the score of whose Prelude, aria et finale contains Vines's written fingerings in blue pencil, Vines had personal dealings with all of these composers. Vines prided himself on his performances of Franck's works and frequently played, among others, the Prelude, choral et fugue. (43)
Although the collection holds only a few works by Gabriel Faure, those scores show evidence of the importance of these works in Vines's repertoire. Perhaps the most interesting of these is his copy of the Theme and Variations, op. 73, with numerous markings. This could be the copy that he used to prepare for a Societe Nationale performance at the Salle Pleyel in 1902. (44) The markings include alterations of the printed tempos and added notes (octaves in the bass), in addition to fingerings.
Emmanuel Chabrier, whom Vines met in company with Ravel just prior to Chabrier's death, was immensely influential on the French composers of the time, especially Ravel. Among the collection's Chabrier holdings is the two-piano arrangement of Espana made by Camille Chevillard. Vines worked on this piece with Chevillard in 1892, (45) and performed it with Alfred Cortor for the Societe Nationale in 1914. (46) Chabrier's solo works also figured in Vines's repertoire. A 1927 republication of the Pieces pittoresques in the collection may have inspired Vines's inclusion of "Melancolie" and "Scherzo-Valse" from that set in a 1928 program at the Salle Erard. That program also included the collection's "Feuillet d'album," the fourth of Chabrier's Cinq morceaux pour piano. (47)
Vincent d'Indy, though perhaps not a household name in piano literature, was a central figure in Parisian musical life at the turn of the century. Vines performed his works in public and included him on a Brussels program of the modern French school. (48) Three solo piano works in the collection--Helvetia: 3 valses (nos. 2 and 3 only), Treize pieces breves, and Schumanniana--bear markings in Vines's hand. Of particular interest are the fingerings in the first of the three Schumanniana, a slow piece of no great difficulty. Here Vines has carefully shown organ-like finger substitutions in several voices to help ensure a legato rendition of the counterpoint. To see such detailed fingering in a slow movement when the other, faster movements of the set are essentially unmarked, gives a good idea of what the mature Vines felt was significant.
Although Vines was responsible for the premieres of most of the important piano works composed by Debussy and Ravel, those scores are unfortunately not part of the university's collection. It does include Vines's two copies of Debussy's D'un cahier d'esquisses, which he performed for the Societe Nationale in 1922, one of which contains a few fingerings in Vines's hand. (49) While this was not one of the works that Vines premiered, he did give the premiere of its companions, Masques and L'isle joyeuse, in 1905. (50) Maurice Ravel, Vines's friend from youth, is represented in the collection only by odds and ends, mostly transcriptions. Two of these that Vines probably performed are an arrangement for two hands of "Laideronnette, imperatrice des pagodes" from the four-hand Ma mere l'oye, and a transcription of the waltzes from the opera L'enfant et les sortileges. (51)
Albeniz's Iberia is represented in the collection by a copy of book 2 with fingerings, hand arrangements, and note corrections in Vines's hand. This copy is of interest because it presents the three pieces in an order that was later changed, with "Triana" printed first instead of last. These are the only pieces from Iberia that Vines performed on Societe Nationale concerts. He performed "Triana" first, in 1911 (it has by far the most markings of the three), followed by "Rondena" in 1914, and "Almeria" in 1922. (52)
Joaquin Turina, among the most important Spanish composers of Vines's generation, is represented by several scores, including Album de viaje, Ninerias, Sanlucar de Barrameda, and Trois danses andalouses. All but Ninerias are inscribed to Vines by Turina, and the Album de viaje and Trois danses andalouses are fingered in Vines's hand. The inscription on Sanlucar de Barrameda, is shown in figure 1.
Vines's copy of Rachmaninoff's famous Prelude in C-Sharp Minor, op. 3, no. 2, is also included in the collection. This sheet music, old and marked with Vines's fingerings in blue pencil, may well be the copy that, according to Elaine Brody, he had purchased in the summer of 1895. (53) Vines did not feature Rachmaninoff's music in his programming, and this early warhorse is the only score by the composer in the collection.
Works by Lesser-Known Composers
The real richness of the Vines Collection lies in the large number of scores by lesser-known composers from many countries. The listings in this section, by composer's nationality, describe only a small fraction of the holdings. Nevertheless, it gives some indication of the scope of the collection and may whet the appetites of those interested in this period for their own direct encounters with this remarkable accumulation of music.
Music from France
The majority of works in the collection are by French composers. Among these are Louis Aubert's Sillages, a score that includes corrections and interpretive markings that most likely emanate from the composer himself. Two others are annotated scores of works by Henry Fevrier--Nocturne no. 1, dedicated to Vines, and Intermezzo--that Vines premiered at the Societe Nationale in 1906 and 1910, respectively. (54) A number of works by Vines's longtime friend Gabriel Grovlez (a pianist with whom he performed two-piano arrangements of Franck's three organ chorales in 1899 (55)) are included. There are several scores of solo and four-hand works by Paul Ladmirault, a fellow member of Les Apaches. (56) One is possibly that which is referred to in Vines's 5 December 1903 diary entry, "Ravel came to dine and to rehearse four-hands a work by Ladmirault." (57)
[FIGURE 1 OMITTED]
Armande de Polignac was the niece of the well-known patron of music Edmond de Polignac. (58) The collection contains a number of her piano works, including a toccata dedicated to Vines, with his fingerings in the published score--a supplement to La revue musicale, a format that in this case suggests that the piece was not published elsewhere. There are two copies of her Berceuse. One copy, inscribed to Vines by the composer, is clean. The other, mentioned above, includes pages of manuscript, presumably in Polignac's hand, pasted over the original published piece--a significant and obviously later revision of the work.
Also included is a signed copy of Jean Poueigh's Pointes seches, with Vines's fingerings. Poueigh, who was better known as a critic under the name Octave Sere, was one of the early advocates of the music of Satie. The premiere of Pointes seches at the Salle Erard was described in unflattering terms in Vines's diary entry for 11 January 1908: "none of these pleased [the audience], as one would have expected, but I programmed these works out of camaraderie. Of course, I played them with music, an unusual thing for me." (59) There are two copies of Jean Roger-Ducasse's beautiful Six Preludes, one of which is fingered by Vines but missing its final page. Florent Schmitt is represented by numerous scores. An early set, Soirs: 10 preludes, includes some fingerings in two of its movements, "Un soir" and "Sur 1' onde." According to Vines's diary entry for 19 March 1912, he performed four pieces from the set at the Salle Erard on a program that also included Debussy's "Poissons d'or" from the second series of Images. (60)
Another work by Schmitt that Vines evidently performed is the Three Rhapsodies, op. 53, for two pianos. There are many markings in the second piano part of both scores in the set, all in Vines's hand. It is possible that the markings spread between the two scores were from two different performances, each one of different movements.
Henry Woollett's Prelude, fugue et final includes fingerings throughout and corrections on pages 2 and 5. Vines premiered the piece at the Societe Nationale on 18 April 1903. (61)
Music from Russia
Russian works figure prominently in the collection. Works by Mily Balakirev include Vines's extensively fingered copy of the Piano Concerto, the Scherzo no. 2 (in B-flat minor, like Chopin's), which Vines performed at the Societe Nationale in 1903, and a number of other important solo piano works. (62)
Among the works by Borodin in the collection, the most interesting is a song, "Chanson de la foret sombre" on a text by the composer. The French translation is credited to the Greek-descended music critic and linguist Michel-Dimitri Calvocoressi, fellow Apache and occultist. (63) The cover has a handwritten inscription in Cyrillic script from Calvocoressi, with his signature and Vines's name transliterated as well (fig. 2).
The pianist-composer Sergey Lyapunov is represented by a signed score of his Nocturne, op. 8; two piano concertos (no. 1 includes corrections in red ink, fingerings, and penciled dynamics); and the second of the twelve Etudes d'execution transcendante, "Ronde des fantomes," with Vines's fingerings.
Arthur Lourie, an avant-garde Russian composer, was important in the early Soviet era. Appointed by Lenin as head of the music section of the state cultural and educational department, he fled to Berlin after the Soviet government grew tired of modernism. He was both influenced by and influential upon Stravinsky, and composed a number of intriguing piano works. One of the scores here, an extremely amusing March dedicated to the young Vladimir Horowitz, contains Vines's fingerings.
Music from Italy
Among the Italian composers in the collection, the most important is Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco. On 19 March 1927, Vines gave what was probably the Paris premiere of a large-scale work, Piedigrotta 1924, for the Societe Nationale. (64) Vines's heavily marked score, which is not inscribed by the composer, resides in the collection. The markings include timings and thoughts for extracting various sections for partial performance. The collection contains a number of scores inscribed to Vines in Castelnuovo-Tedesco's hand and dated individually between 1916 and 1924, including Il raggio verde, op. 9; Alghe, op. 12; Cipressi, op. 17 (fig. 3); I naviganti, op. 13; and Questo fu il carro della morte, op. 2. Piedigrotta 1924 is the only one of these that Vines definitely performed. Of the others, only Il raggio verde, with one of the earliest inscriptions, dated 1918, contains any markings at all. (65)
Music from Latin America
Of the Latin American composers, the largest number of works by far is by the Argentine Alberto Williams. After completing his education in Argentina, Williams studied composition and piano on a scholarship at the Paris Conservatoire from 1882 to 1889. He returned to Argentina to perform, compose, and establish a conservatory using the methods he had been exposed to in Paris. (66) Evidently Williams was in Paris in 1915, at which time he signed the score of his Vidalitas, op. 61, for Vines. Whether Vines's first trip to South America, in 1920, was in part a result of this encounter makes for intriguing speculation. The collection's scores of Williams's Milongas, op. 63, and Cantares, op. 70, were inscribed to Vines in 1920, the year of that first South American sojourn. Upon Vines's return to South America in 1924, he received a printed dedication in Williams's Poema de la quebrada, op. 79. This score also has a handwritten inscription from the composer and Vines's fingerings in blue pencil.
[FIGURE 2 OMITTED]
In the 1930s, when Vines was living in Buenos Aires, Williams inscribed scores of two compilations, one of Milongas and one of six pieces extracted from the series of Poemas. Vines's abiding interest in Williams's music is evident from the number of pieces that bear his fingerings and markings, including En la pampa, op. 76; Poema fueguino, op. 86; Cantares: Chants populaires, op. 70; and Suite Argentina, op. 91. The music employs a French pianistic sensibility with a combination of Argentine folklore--most obviously in the Milongas--and pictorialism, as in the evocatively titled movements of the Poemas (see figure 4, and examples in the listing of selected holdings).
[FIGURE 3 OMITTED]
The Chilean composer Pedro Humberto Allende, who studied in Paris and Madrid in 1910-11, was influenced by Florent Schmitt. While his later music was based on his extensive studies of Chilean folklore, the short pieces included in the Vines Collection are written in an attractive and somewhat dissonant postimpressionist style reminiscent of Schmitt. The scores of the Four Etudes and the Two Preludes bear fingerings in Vines's hand. He premiered the Miniatures grecques for the Societe Nationale on 20 April 1929. (67) All of these works were in Vines's South American touring repertoire, and appeared frequently on his programs in Chile and Argentina in the 1930s. (68)
[FIGURE 4 OMITTED]
Uruguayan composer Luis Cluzeau-Mortet was also part of this first generation of South American nationalist composers. His Visiones camperas, a set of three short pieces, is dedicated to Vines and was premiered by him on 21 November 1931 in Montevideo. (69) The score is signed by the composer and includes Vines's fingerings.
The Argentine composer Maria Isabel Curubeto Godoy had been a student of Theodor Leschetizky and Giovanni Sgambati in Europe. Along with other of her works in the collection, Vines performed the First Nocturne a number of times in his South American tours. (70) The collection's copy includes fingerings. The composer signed Vines's copy of her Carnavalesca; aside from the signature, the score is unmarked and there is no evidence that Vines ever performed the work.
Several scores represent Raoul de Verneuil, a Peruvian. Of these, a set of three dances--"Colinas," "El puma," and "La boa"--are extensively fingered and corrected. These were most likely part of the program that Vines presented to open the Peruvian Pavilion at the Paris Exposition of 1937. (71) The markings in the scores include added dynamics, corrected notes, added ties, added tempo markings, and even a cut. The care that Vines obviously took with these works is remarkable. At the very end of his career, he was still doing his part to promote the music of an obscure composer from a country with no Western musical tradition to speak of, and working with that composer to present the best possible performance. This commitment is especially striking in light of the nature of these pieces--primitivist evocations of Peruvian folk music, notable for an extraordinary and original harmonic language, and a modernist aesthetic largely absent from Vines's repertoire.
Ricardo Vines's abiding interest in the music of his contemporaries may, as John and Anna Gillespie suggest, have made his career less materially successful. That passion also created one of his most important legacies, the collection of music by his contemporaries that he accumulated throughout his creative life. The collection now at the University of Colorado at Boulder documents a particularly fertile period in the history of piano music, offering a view, not necessarily of what we have come to know as the standard repertoire of the era, but of a broad cross-section of the composers who were active at the time. Just as Beethoven overshadowed many German composers of the early nineteenth century, the early twentieth century was likewise dominated by the figures of Ravel and Debussy. As a result, many of their contemporaries, both inside and outside of France, have been forgotten. This collection, with its broad base of the individual composers and nationalities represented, offers extensive opportunities to performers and scholars interested in further exploration of the period.
The listing of selected holdings in the collection that follows high-lights some of the more interesting scores from Vines's library; editions that are not otherwise represented in OCLC's WorldCat or the RLG Union Catalog are indicated by asterisks. An index of all the composers represented in the collection--arranged alphabetically and including dates and nationalities where known--is also provided; composers who are not otherwise represented in OCLC's WorldCat or the RLG Union Catalog are indicated by asterisks. The selected bibliography and composer listing give a broad, but incomplete, picture of the overall contents of the Ricardo Vines's Piano Music Collection and the legacy that it represents. Full cataloging records of the more than eight hundred works and editions in the collection are accessible in the University of Colorado at Boulder's online catalog (http://libraries.colorado.edu/search) with the local subject heading "Vines Collection."

Madame Bringuet-Idiartborde was a mysterious Argentine-born composer resident in France--even her first name seems unobtainable (Berrocal, 196). Her works were included on Vines's programs in South America, including a program in Buenos Aires on 31 October 1930 (Berrocal, 88-89).

*Chimenti, Armando. Chant du matin. Buenos Aires: J. A. Medina & Hijo, [1920?]. Pub. no. 26494; CU call no. M25.C54 C4. Inscribed to Vines by the composer on caption. Chimenti is one of the Argentine composers whose works were performed by Vines in Europe in the years 1925-29 (Berrocal, 78-79).

Czibulka, Alphons. Gavotte Stephanie. Brussels: Schott Freres, [1880-81?]. Pub. no. S. F. 3005; CU call no. M25.C95 G3. Typical of the salon music that Vines might have played (for money) in Paris during his student years.
*De Blanck, Hubert. Hymne a Jose Marti pour deux pianos. Paris: F. Durdilly, 1905. Pub. no. F. 5611. D.; CU call no. M214.B43 H9. Includes metronome marks in ink on pp. 1 and 15. Vines's apparent interest in Cuban nationalism was perhaps related to his reported fascination with and abhorrence of the Spanish-American War.
Debussy, Claude.... D'un cahier d'esquisses: Pour piano. Brussels: Schott Freres, 1904. Pub. no. S. F. 5104; CU call no. M25.D438 D8 (2 copies).
______. Iberia: "Images" pour orchestre, no. 2. Transcription pour 2 piano 4 mains par Andre Caplet. Paris: A. Durand, 1910. Pub. no. D. & F. 7706; CU call no. M215.D42 I44. Score II has markings in purple in the first piano part on pp. 21 and 26.
*______. Pelleas et Melissande: Drame lyrique, Acte III, scene I. [Paris]: Monde Musical, 1902. Pub. no. M. M. 53; CU call no. M1508.D42 P4. Vocal score. A supplement to Le monde musical from 15 May 1902. Vines clipped and kept many of these supplements, judging from the number of them in the collection. This one dates from the period when Les Apaches faithfully attended every performance of the opera, which premiered 30 April 1902 (Orenstein, 37).
Delage, Maurice. Schumann ...: Pour piano. Paris: A. Durand & Fils, 1921. E. & F. 10027; CU call no. M25.D442 S3. Contains some fingerings as well as Vines's trademark "X" in several spots. Delage was one of Les Apaches; a student of Ravel, he was actually of the same generation as Ravel and Vines.
Diverses pieces et variations: Pour piano sur un theme oblige. Paris: E. Demets, 1910. Pub. nos. E. 1487 D.-E. 1491 D.; CU call no. M21.A2 D5. Contents: Introduction, 12 variations et fugue / Swan Hennessy--8 variations / Hugo Rasch--2 variations: Bebe s'endort; Bebe s'eveille / Georges Loth--Mazurka / Auguste Delacroix--Variations / Herbert Fryer.
*Dubois, Theodore. Poemes sylvestres: Pour piano. Paris: Heugel, 1893. vols. 2 and 5 (of 6). Pub. nos. H. & Cie. 9482 (2) (vol. 2), H. & Cie. 9485 (5) (vol. 5); CU call no. M24.D83 P6. Contents: Les myrtilles--La source enchantee. Volume 2 signed by Vines in pencil on title page. "Les myrtilles," vol. 2 from this collection, figured on Vines's 1895 debut program. This was most likely the copy from which he learned the piece (includes fingerings). Typical for the maturing Vines, he has mostly indicated his fingerings in the slower music rather than in the more "technical" fast sections.
*______. Sonate pour piano. Paris: Heugel, 1908. Pub. no. H. & Cie. 23,668; CU call no. M23.D93 S6. Inscribed to Vines on the title page by the composer; otherwise clean. By 1908, the scandal of Ravel's Prix-de-Rome failure had toppled Dubois from his position as head of the Paris Conservatoire, and one questions why Vines would bother performing Dubois's music after his fall from power.
Duboscq. Claude. Matines, sarabandes, et gaillardes: Pour piano. Paris: M. Senart, 1923. Pub. no. E. M. S. 6097; CU call no. M25.D77 M3. Inscribed to Vines by the composer on p. . A quite peculiar set of pieces by this obscure composer. The composer's preface suggests extracting suites of three pieces (one each of the "matines," "sarabandes," and "gaillardes" of the title) for performance. Evidently, Vines did just that as his markings are to be found in only one set of three (pp. 10-11, 16-18, 26-29). The composer, evidently an ultraconservative Catholic, wrote a full-page inscription in this copy celebrating his and Vines's religious sympathies.
Dupin, Paul. Le beau jardin: Piano a 4 mains. Paris: P. Dupin. 1912; CU call no. M203.D86 B4. Contents: La pelouse aux marronniers--La piece d'eau aux petits poissons rouges--Aubade au poulailler--D'ou l'on voit la vieille eglise. Inscribed to Vines by the composer on title page.
*______. Trois esquisses fuguees: Pour le piano. 6 vols. Paris: A. Durand & Fils, 1913-14. Pub. nos. D. & F. 8812-8814 (vols. 1-3) and D. & F. 9093-D. & F. 9095 (vols. 4-6); CU call no. M25.D85 E8. Vols. 1-4 inscribed to Vines by the composer on title page; vols. 4-6 dedicated to Vines.

This may be one of the scores referred to in Vines's diary entry for 5 December 1899: "I also bought two pieces by Faure, another poet of lunar music" (Gubisch, 221).
______. 3eme valse-caprice: Pour piano, op. 59. Paris: J. Hamelle, [1906?]. Pub. no. J. 3666 H.; CU call no. M32.F38 V3 op.59.
______. Theme et variations, op. 73. Paris: J. Hamelle, [1897?]. Pub. no. J. 4071 H.; CU call no. M27.F3 op.73. Contains extensive markings, including changes in indicated tempos, added notes (octaves in bass), etc. He performed the work for the Societe Nationale on 5 April 1902 (Duchesneau, 262). The extent of the markings in this score suggest that it was the copy from which Vines learned the work.
*Fevrier, Henry. 1er nocturne: Fa# majeur. Paris: H. Gregh, 1905. Pub. no. H. G. 1283; CU call no. M25.F49 N6. Dedicated to Vines who, typically, underlined his name on the title page in blue crayon, even going so far in this case to add the missing tilde over the "n" in the same crayon. Contains interpretive markings, fingerings, and timing in Vines's hand; probably the copy from which he learned the piece for the premiere for the Societe Nationale on 17 March 1906 (Duchesneau, 266).
*______. Intermezzo: Pour piano. Paris: A. Leduc, 1907. Pub. no. A. L. 13,697; CU call no. M25.F49 I8. Contains fingerings in blue and black pencil. Vines premiered the work for the Societe Nationale on 5 March 1910 (Duchesneau, 270).

Gedalge was Ravel's counterpoint teacher at the Paris Conservatoire, and had a strong influence on many French composers, including Enesco, Koechlin, Roger-Ducasse. Milhaud and Honegger.
*Ghys, Henry. "A l'aventure": Vingt pieces pour le piano. Paris: A. Leduc, [1904?]. Pub. no. A. L. 6830; CU call no. M24.G52 A4. Contents: En chemin--Une source--Ciel noir--Pluie furieuse--Le beau temps renait--Feux follets--La joyeuse auberge--Insomnie--Madrigal--Au bord du torrent--Sous bois--Un moulin--La fenaison--Sieste--Songe--Indolence--La bete poursuivie--Crepuscule--Echos du chateau--Retour.

Gomez Carrillo, Manuel. El mistolero: Gato santiagueno para piano. Buenos Aires: G. Ricordi, [1924?]. Pub. no. B. A. 6099; CU call no. M25.G66 M5. Dedicated to Vines. This was a particular favorite, and Vines programmed it frequently. The composer was a native of provincial northern Argentina, and based his music on traditional dances of the region (Berrocal, 210, passim).
*Goremyka, Iwan [pseud.]. La concierge est dans l'escalier: Phantasiette pour piano a sept octaves, avec fugue, leitmotif, polymodalite, polytonalite. Paris: Edition Mutuelle, [1913-19?]. Pub. no. E. 7156 M.; CU call no. M25.G67 C6. A marvelous curiosity. The composer's name is evidently a pseudonym; the publisher has included a note that concocts an unlikely story of political repression and Siberian exile. The piece itself is a series of Satie-esque vignettes with descriptive texts that tell the story of a visitor to an apartment building who fails to find anyone at home.
*Grovlez, Gabriel. Burlesque pour piano. Paris: L. Rouhier, [1898-1901?]. Pub. no. L. R. 81; CU call no. M25.G77 B8. Inscribed to Vines by the composer on title page. Grovlez and Vines were friends beginning in the 1890s. On 4 February 1899, they performed an arrangement for two pianos of Cesar Franck's Trois chorals (Gubisch, 196).

Harsanyi, Tibor. Six pieces courtes: Pour piano. Paris: Heugel, 1927. Pub. no. H. 29,664; CU call no. M25.H378 P5. Inscribed to Vines by the composer on title page. The Hungarian Harsanyi lived in Paris in the 1920s and is associated with Martinu, among other Eastern European composers in the city at the time. The Vines Collection includes a large number of his solo piano works, although all of the scores are so clean that it is hard to imagine that they were ever used. The composer autograph on Six pieces courtes at least shows that Harsanyi was interested in Vines.
Herberigs, Robert. Poemes elegiaques: Pour piano. Gand, [Belgium]: P. Struyf, [1921?]. Pub. no. P. 868 S.; CU call no. M25.H44 P6. Includes corrections in blue pencil; more evidence of Vines's interest in his contemporaries in countries like Belgium with relatively unsung musical traditions.
______. Trois ballades pour piano. Gand, [Belgium]: P. Struyf, [1924?]. Pub. no. P. 872 S.; CU call no. M25.H44 B3. Inscribed to Vines by the composer on title page.

______. Schumanniana: Trois chants sans paroles pour piano, op. 30. Paris: J. Hamelle, [1889?]. Pub. no. J. 2846 H.; CU call no. M25.I53 S3. The first contains detailed fingerings, showing substitutions in order to achieve legato in all voices of the texture.
______. Treize pieces breves: Pour piano, op. 68. Geneva: Henn, 1916. Pub. no. A. 51 H.; CU call no. M25.I53 op. 68. Contents: Cadenza--Burlesca--En automne. Includes timing on p. 23, "4 minutes [:] les trois pieces nos 6, 7, et, 13." Typical for his time, Vines was clearly not averse to extracting odd movements from collections for performance.
Inghelbrecht, Desire Emile. Paysages: Pour piano. London: J. & W. Chester, 1920. Pub. no. J. W. C. 2072; CU call no. M24.I53 P3. Contents: Courdimanche a l'horizon--La lune sur la plaine--Le reveil de la ferme--Une croix sur le chemin--Le parterre ensoleille. Does not have Vines's stamp but does have a typical marking in blue crayon on the cover.
*Jemain, J. Aspirations. Vols. 1-2. Lyon: Janin Freres, [1901-2?]. Pub. nos. J. F. 548 (vol. 1), J. F. 638 (vol. 2); CU call no. M24.J45 A8. v.1-2. Contents: Vers les sources, op. 19, no. 2--Vers l'amour, op. 19, no. 2. Vol. 1 inscribed to Vines by the composer on title page. Vol. 2 inscribed to Vines by the composer on caption, and dedicated to Vines as well. Vines premiered the two Aspirations at the Salle Pleyel on 13 January 1900 (Duchesneau, 279). Since the premiere took place before the date of publication, these scores have no markings other than the composer's inscriptions. Evidently Vines learned the pieces from manuscript.
Ketterer, Eugene. Fleur de bruyere: Morceau de salon pour piano, op. 77. Paris: A. Grus, [1860?]. Pub. no. A. G. 2180; CU call no. M25.K47 op.77. Likely purchased in Barcelona before 1885. This music is typical of the salon pieces that Vines learned in his early years.
Labey, Marcel. Sonate: Pour piano. Paris: E. Demets, [1900?]. Pub. no. E. 646 D.; CU call no. M23.L14 S61. Inscribed to Vines by the composer on title page. Vines premiered this work at the Salle Erard on 24 February 1900 (Duchesneau, 282). This signed score is clean; evidently it was a presentation copy given to Vines in October following the premiere.
Ladmirault, Paul. 4 esquisses: Pour piano. 4 vols. Paris: E. Demets, 1909. Pub. nos. E. 1443 D.-E. 1446 D.; CU call no. M25.L32 E81 v.1-4. Contents: Chemin creux--Valse melancolique--Vers l'eglise dans le soir--Minuit dans les clairieres. The Breton composer Paul Ladmirault was a friend and fellow student of Ravel in Faure's class. Clearly, from the presence of these scores (all gifts, evidently) in Vines's library, they were also friends. Vines's diary entry for 5 December 1903 includes mention of a visit from Ravel who "came to dine and to rehearse a work by Ladmirault for four hands" (Gubisch, 201). All of the items in the collection were published several years later.

Leschetizky, Theodor. Intermezzo en octaves, op. 44, no. 4. Berlin: E. Bote & G. Bock, 1897. Pub. no. 14586; CU call no. M25.L46 op. 44, no. 4. There is evidence that Vines studied both this work and the one following, as they contain some fingerings and other typical markings.
______. Souvenirs d'Italie: Suite de morceaux pour piano, op. 39. No. 4. Mandolinata. Berlin: E. Bote & G. Bock, [1890?]. Pub. no. 13425; CU call no. M25.L46 op. 39, no. 4.

Lyapunov, Sergey. Concerto, op. 4: Partition pour deux pianos. Berlin: E. Bote & G. Bock, [1892?]. Pub. no. 13647; CU call no. M1011.L69 op. 4 (2 copies). Contains corrections in red ink (pp. 5, 8, 9), an unusual medium for Vines. Nonetheless, given his acquaintance with the composer (note the dedication of the next entry), these corrections most likely come from Lyapunov. Also contains a few fingerings and penciled dynamic markings on p. 7.
*______. Deux morceaux de l'opera Rousslan et Ludmila de M. Glinka: Parafrases, op. 33, no. 2. Combat et mort de Tschernomor. Leipzig: J. H. Zimmerman, 1908. Pub. no. Z. 4656; CU call no. M34.L53 op. 33. Dedicated to Vines.

Contents: Chant d'amour--La serenade joyeuse--Reverie--En gambadant--La priere--Danse. Contains markings in the first piece in blue and black pencil, including changes most probably given by the composer. Machado is another Argentine composer whose music was in Vines's repertoire (Berrocal, 210).

2. Charles-Wilfrid Beriot (1833-1914), son of the Belgian violinist and composer Charles-Auguste de Beriot (1802-1870), attracted a number of students from Spain because of an important connection: his mother was the great Spanish mezzo-soprano Maria Malibran (1808-1836), who died when he was three: his aunt (Malibran's sister) was the mezzo-soprano, composer, and pianist Pauline Viardot (1821-1910); his uncle (brother of Malibran and Viardot) was Manuel Garcia the younger (1805-1906), baritone and singing teacher; and the progenitor of these three--Beriot's grandfather--was the elder Manuel Garcia (1775-1832), who was a composer, tenor, and singing teacher.

4. Ibid., 50, quoting Vines's diary entry for 9 February 1893. From 1887 until 1914, with occasional interruptions, Vines kept a diary in which he described several aspects of his life, including the books he read, the pieces he worked on and performed, the friends he spent time with, and his emotional states. Various parts of the diary (written in Spanish) have been translated into French. See Nina Gubisch, ed., "Le journal inedit de Ricardo Vines: Introduction, traduction et notes," Revue internationale de la musique francaise 1 (1980): 153-248; and Suzy Levy, ed., Journal inedit de Ricardo Vines: Odilon Redon et le milieu occultiste, 1897-1915 (Paris: Aux Amateurs de Livres, 1987). For extracts and summaries in English, see Elaine Brody, "The Spaniards in Paris: From the Unpublished Journal of Ricardo Vines," in her Paris: The Musical Kaleidoscope, 1870-1925 (New York: George Braziller, 1987), 168-89.
5. Vines's later scores are usually only lightly marked with occasional fingerings, but the score of this concerto has fingering numbers on virtually every note in the passage-work, in a handwriting that is most likely that of the young Vines.
6. Gubisch, 188.
7. Best friends since youth, the relationship between Ravel and Vines cooled considerably after the 1908 premiere of Gaspard de la nuit. According to Nina Gubisch (interview by Korevaar, 20 June 2002), after the death of Vines's mother in 1907 the pianist turned more and more to Catholicism and became more aggressive with his religious beliefs as well as his reactionary politics. Vines back-slappingly shared his enthusiasms in art, the occult, and religious mysticism, according to Leon-Paul Fargue, "Un heros de la musique: Ricardo Vines," in his Portraits de famille: Souvenirs (Paris: J. B. Janin, 1947), 221-22. It is conceivable that the fervently secular and left-wing Ravel finally lost patience with his friend's religious and political pronouncements. For more information on the Vines-Ravel relationship, see David Korevaar, "Ravel's Mirrors" (D.M.A. diss., The Juilliard School, 2000), 2-9, 13-18, 19-20, 37-40, 49.

A selective list of Vines's premiere performances, including many outside of Paris, is found in Brody, "Vines in Paris," 57-61.

16. According to Brody, "Vines in Paris," 48, "After a triumphal return concert in Paris, his star began to fade. Although he had been decorated by the French, Belgian, and Spanish governments, he received fewer commissions, gave fewer recitals (these with miserably low fees), and won less and less recognition."

19. Only the last three digits of the cards' numbers are meaningful. A "201" indicates the composer, "401" the title, "501" the arranger, and "751" the imprint. Blank cards were inserted between pieces, and composer cards were not repeated for multiple compositions. The numbering system--increasing by five for each new title's card set--made it possible to put them back in the right sequence.

22. Bull was a student of Bela Bartok and Percy Grainger. His musical pedigree is also notable. Both of his grandfathers were nephews of the famous Norwegian violinist Ole Bull (1810-1880), and both were also first cousins of Edvard Grieg (1843-1907).
