I've encountered her on a few recent piano collections. There is a lot of her work on IMSLP but as she lived until 1937, a number of her later works are not there yet, including the lovely Op.126/13 La toute petite sendort from Miocheries, which is on Bertrand Chamayou's recent Good Night! recital. Fortunately a lot is still in print.

Hi

I have just completed the catalogue of works by Dora Bright and it is quite extensive. In case anyone is interested here is another one of her songs - 'There sits a Bird'.

If anyone has any more of her music or any other information about her I would be very interested.

Thanks

Anthony

Wurmbrand-Stuppach ([Wurm]Brand-Vrabely) (Grafin Wurmbrand), Stephanie von (1849-1919)

(this composer seems to have gone through a few name changes...)

However, want to highlight that her more famous piece was recently performed:



'Melusine am Quell' from Op. 33, Schone Melusine. I am not exactly sure of the No. among this opus, though.

An ensemble arrangement of this work seems to be available here, though it does not seem to be the full work.

A more casual piece, her Waltz, Op. 36.

And her Libelle (Dragonfly)

There are some other works available by her on HathiTrust, as well.

so very welcome and thank you HP for pulling the scores! A decent size works list of Ms. Brand-Vrabely is available on Wikipedia.
