Music notes written by Hugo Alfvén

Uppsala University Library has acquired a notebook that belonged to the Swedish composer Hugo Alfvén (1872-1960), which contains seven compositions from his youth. The book is dated to about 1890, at which time Alfvén was 18 years old.

The book has shelfmark: Vmhs 205.

Alfvén’s music is still protected by copyright law and can therefore not be made available in digital copies. However, in our database Alvin you find a list of the materials in his personal archive, today a part of the manuscript collections at the University Library, as well as other materials connected to Alfvén.
