Collectionner la musique / Collecting music

Launched in 2010 by the Fondation Royaumont following its acquisition of the library of the pianist François Lang (1908–1944), the Brepols series Collectionner la musique/Collecting music  is devoted to exploring the history of music collecting.

The first volume, Collectionner la musique: Histoires d’une passion seeks to define music collecting in all its forms through profiles of some of the great European collectors and analyses of outstanding collections dating from the 16th century to the present—including those of João IV of Portugal, Padre Martini, and Henry Prunières. Further volumes will be devoted to the musician as collector and the learned collector.
