On December 20th, 2018, Molly and Charles Stier
had a special appointment with a curator of the
Music Division of the Library of Congress in Washington, DC, to examine -- and actually touch -- the original manuscripts of Aaron Copland's Concerto for Clarinet and the Passacaglia for Piano.

Their visit culminated in a moment of rare privilege
with the examination of Ludwig van Beethoven's
Piano Sonata in E Major, Op. 109 -- the finest Beethoven manuscript in the possession of
the People of the United States of America.


They have been invited to return for a private viewing of the manuscripts of Franz Joseph Haydn.
