Clapisson-Vanier collection

Clapisson-Vanier collection

The Clapisson-Vanier collection brings together various archives related to Louis Clapisson and his father Antoine Clapisson. It is made up of documents kept by the family and later acquisitions by Benoît Vanier (a descendant of the composer). It was digitised and catalogued by the Palazzetto Bru Zane in 2021.

 The Bru Zane Mediabase’s online items give only a glimpse of the collection. While all the iconographic documents and letters can be consulted, the printed scores are limited to their title pages. Readers interested in the musical content of certain pieces are therefore asked to contact us to gain access to them.
