Felix Horetzky works

The works list below represents my latest work on the works of Felix Horetzky (Feliks Horecki) (1796-1870). Horetzky republished the same composition with multiple publishers often tracing his movements from Vienna to Paris and then on to London. I have denoted these publications with letters after the opus numbers.

Takei Collection

This is an incomplete list of compositions in the Morishige Takei collection at the Kunitachi College of Music in Tokyo, Japan. It was compiled by Jun Sugawara, of HOMAdream. The Takei collection is not publicly accessibly to my knowledge, nor has it been fully catalogued. After Takei’s death it was in the custody of at least one other person during which time portions may have been mixed with other collections. Takei also had a large amount of mandolin music in his possession. I doubt that this list represents the total of his guitar collection. One thing to remember though is that Takei lost nearly all of his collection due to fires caused by the great Kanto earthquake in 1923, though his rebuilt collection mostly survived other fires caused by air raids on Tokyo during World War II.

Giulianiad

The Giulianiad was published in London from January 1833 through possibly July 1835. Its editor was not listed in any of the journals but it is fairly well accepted that Ferdinand Pelzer was very involved in the work. There are only two known locations of complete issues of the journal: The British Library and the Appleby Collection at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. There are a number of individual issues in other collections and libraries. (more…)
