His commissions include those from such diverse groups as the Tallahassee Symphony, the International Trombone Association, the Apple Trio, the Concertino String Quartet, the Mallarmé Chamber Players, and the University of North Carolina at Greensboro School of Music, as well as from a number of individuals including conductor Richard Burgin, flutist Albert Tipton, soprano Janice Harsanyi, pianist Jane Perry-Camp, and pianist/conductor Max Lifchitz (for North/South Consonance). The North Carolina Symphony and the ARTEA Chamber Orchestra of San Francisco, among others, have premièred his music.

The Egon Wellesz Contemporary Sheet Music Collection

The Egon Wellesz Contemporary Music Collection consists of music scores, books, programs, correspondence, and other documents originally owned by composer Egon Wellesz (1885-1974). The collection was donated to UNCG University Libraries' Martha Blakeney Hodges University Archives and Special Collections by Dr. Harold Schiffman in 2009 along with a collection of his own work and by Jane Perry-Camp. Additional materials were donated by Julia Rosenthal.

 

The sheet music has been digitized and placed online with the exception of several works that are not currently in the public domain. Some materials are available only within the United States or within the confines of UNCG University Libraries, and some are not currently available online at all. These materials may be made publicly available online at the expiration of their copyright terms, subject to U.S. and European Union copyright law. Information about the works in question is available for all items, even those to which online access is restricted.
