Editions

Works by Louise Talma
While some of Talma’s works have been typeset and published, the majority of her music is published only as copies of her own fair copy manuscripts or is not published at all. This lack of availability has contributed to Talma’s works not being performed in the years following her death. This project makes Talma’s works available for performers and scholars. New editions will be added as they are complete. For copies of Talma’s manuscripts, email KendraLeonard at pm dot me.

Works by Julia Perry
Like many of Talma’s works, most of Julia Perry’s music exists only in manuscript, and many works, including the much longed-for Viola Sonata, are lost. Perry had a stroke and taught herself to write again, and much of her work takes time to decipher and engrave correctly. For the works I post here, I’ll also include a PDF of the manuscript. I would be grateful for feedback and suggested corrections.
