Autograph of Joachim Raff discovered
In 2022, we celebrate the 200th birthday of Joachim Raff. Appropriately, the autograph of Raff’s Symphony No. 10 op. 213 Zur Herbstzeit appeared recently.
The find is special not only because it is “a living testimony of the author,” but also because only a few autographs of Raff are known. The manuscript, generously donated to the Raff Archive, is the first version of the symphony. Compared to the printed version, it contains corrections and entries as well as a previously unknown version of the finale.
