Scope and Content

Isidore Philipp, pianist, composer and preeminent teacher of piano at the Conservatoire National de Musique de Paris and the American Conservatory of Fontainbleau, counted Dwight Anderson, dean of the University of Louisville School of Music from 1932 to 1956, among his pupils. When Philipp fled France during the Nazi invasion in 1940, Anderson invited him to Louisville where he taught and lectured during 1941. This archive includes Isadore Philipp's original compositions, pedagogical works, and compositions edited by him. The archive also includes autograph letters from noted composers and performers, among them Ferruccio Busoni (1866-1924), Jules Massenet (1842-1912), and Camille Saint-Saƫns (1835-1921). The memorial library, which continues to develop the legacy of Isadore Philipp, was established in 1977 under the aegis of the American Liszt Society.
