Résumé : The Curtius Museum in Liège holds in its collection the genuine office of legendary violin master, known as “Studio Eugène Ysaÿe”. Beautifully hardbacked volumes of his library can be found on the shelfs which were designed and crafted especially for him. There are more than 1350 books that range across multiple domains: literature, history, music, philosophy, sociology, psychology. Among the books resides an important part of Ysaÿe’s musical library, which, along with collections of the Royal Library of Brussels and the Conservatory of Liège, amounts to nearly 2000 manuscripts and printed scores. How do these precious sources testify about Ysaÿe’s artistic world? What do the various hand markings present in the volumes tell us about his violinistic expression and musical ideas?
