Stefan Zweig’s Extraordinary Music Collection

Stefan Zweig was an Austrian writer and one time collaborator of Strauss, until they fell out at the start of the Nazi occupation, when Strauss’ behaviour became abhorrent to the Jewish Zweig. Over the course of his lifetime, Zweig was an avid collector of signed musical manuscripts – from Bach, Haydn, Chopin, Mahler to Debussy, among others. His collection of 4,000 scripts is now in the care of the British Library. Read more in Fine Books Magazine.
