Title
Vittorio Rieti scores, 1930-1994.
Summary
With the exception of a three-page handwritten list of Rieti's works, the Vittorio Rieti scores contain only musical sketches and scores (manuscript and published) by the well-known composer. In addition to a wide range of orchestral works, the collection includes versions of several of Rieti's operas, with libretti or lyrics in English, Italian, or French, including preliminary sketches, vocal, and complete scores of Don Perlimplin. Other operas represented in the collection include The Pet Shop, The Clock, and Maryam the Harlot. Unfortunately, there is no material for such early Rieti compositions as Orfeo Tragedia or Teresa Nel Bosco in the collection.

Biography
Vittorio Rieti (1898-1994) was a prolific American composer of Italian descent, who worked primarily in a neo-classical vein. Rieti studied music with Giuseppe Frugatta in Milan (1912-1917). Following military service he resumed studies in Rome with Alfredo Casella and Ottorino Respighi. From the mid-1920s until 1940, Rieti primarily was based in Paris, where he was associated closely with Les Six and other notable contemporary composers, including Igor Stravinsky. He wrote ballet music for Serge Diaghilev's Ballets Russes, including Barabau (an early collaboration with George Balanchine) and incidental music for productions staged by Louis Jouvet's theater company. In addition to his work for the theater, Rieti also was involved with the contemporary chamber music group La Sérénade. He immigrated to the United States in 1940, becoming a citizen in 1944. Rieti continued to compose ballet music, working again with Balanchine on Night Shadow (later called La Sonnambula) as well as orchestral music, remaining active until shortly before his death.
