The Treasures of Yvar Mikhashoff

An exhibit that displays various rare and unique music scores from the Yvar Mikhashoff Collection of Annotated Scores. Mikhashoff (1941-1993) was a multi-talented pianist and composer who served on the music faculty at the University at Buffalo 1973-1993. He was an imaginative and tireless concert programmer who explored musical themes via genres (tangos and waltzes), eras, styles, and composers. Mikhashoff expanded the piano repertoire by commissioning new works and made his own transcriptions of other literature for keyboard, including his series of virtuosic opera transcriptions in the same vein as those by Liszt. His collection of annotated scores contains more than 1200 titles, many of which reflect his close working relationships with contemporary composers.
