Music Handwriting of Notable Composers

Image
Music is a language. We often see the computerized font version of that language from elementary school on through professional careers, but composers (including me!) often compose using pencil and paper. Here are the manuscripts/handwritings of a handful of very important composers throughout history. The name of the composer appears under the picture of their handwriting. The first one belongs to Mozart!





Danse Macabre | Camille Saint Saens

Written by French composer, Camille Saint-Saens ("San Sawn") in 1874 as a story told with music.
