Historical Note

The Barnes Foundation was established in 1922 as an educational institution devoted to “the promotion of the advancement of education and the appreciation of the fine arts.” Its founder, Dr. Albert C. Barnes (1872–1951), wanted to develop an educational program committed to critical thinking and the ideals upheld by John Dewey’s philosophy—the ability to learn through lived experience.[1] To quote Barnes himself: “It is that plain, ordinary person, with little schooling, whom we want to teach to use the qualities of mind, heart and soul, with which he was endowed by nature, in such a way that he will be able to understand what the thinkers have done and what the artists have done. That is the main idea for the Foundation.”[2] In addition to educating students about the fine arts, Dr. Barnes was committed to programs related to horticulture. The original property in Merion contains an intricate arboretum with over 3,000 species and varieties of woody plants from around the world.

While the core mission of the Foundation reflects ideals surrounding visual arts and horticulture, Dr. Barnes also viewed music as an important component to the overall educational experience. He saw great value in what music could bring to his lessons in terms of intellectual and emotional stimuli, stating, “Of all the arts, music is the fittest for the expression of emotion. It has direct sensuous appeal; the relations between sounds are exceedingly complex, and in their complexity they parallel the complexity of actual situations; the fact that it is spread out in time also makes it an appropriate vehicle for the rise and fall of emotion.”[3]

Dr. Barnes incorporated music into the Foundation’s art classes during his Sunday lectures (or “demonstrations,” as he referred to them), where he made connections between art and music, pairing various composers with visual artists. In a letter to the Victor Talking Machine Company requesting more discs, Barnes stated, “We give a course in Comparative Aesthetics at which we use, several times a week, your Electrola 12-15. The main object is not only to show the musical forms of the various composers, but the analogy between music and paintings.”[4] A major portion of his lectures included this type of analysis and comparison-making, such as the first movement of Ludwig van Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 and Paul Cézanne’s  The Card Players (Les Joueurs de cartes).[5] One such pairing that especially intrigued Barnes was that of twentieth-century composer Igor Stravinsky and artist Henri Matisse. This comparison was so important to Barnes that he and Violette de Mazia devoted an entire chapter to it in their book  The Art of Henri Matisse. They state, “The immediate effect of each, upon the unaccustomed observer, is one of surprise, even of shock, and this is true both of their actual sensuous quality and of the extremely varied and daring relations in which the elements of the form are set.”[6] Barnes describes both artists’ works as “raucous,” “exotic,” and “primitive,” demonstrating “stridency and dissonance” as well as influences from African American spirituals and folk music.[7]

Perhaps Dr. Barnes was able to draw these kinds of connections between Western art and African cultures because of an early love of spirituals and folk songs, most likely influenced by the Methodist “camp meetings” that he attended with his mother during the summertime of his youth. “Since I was six years old I’ve been an enthusiast on negro music. I caught the germ at a camp meeting at Merchantville, N.J., followed it up at Burlington, N.J.” He added that over the years, he also had the opportunity to listen to his African American employees singing spirituals while they worked.[8] It is no surprise that African American blues and spiritual recordings make up a noteworthy portion of this collection, which includes recordings by artists such as Paul Robeson, Marian Anderson, the Tuskegee Quartet, Joshua White and His Carolinians, Utica Institute Jubilee Singers, and Sea Island spirituals from Saint Helena Island.

Dr. Barnes promoted African American music and culture at the Foundation by hosting annual Sunday-afternoon concerts given by the Bordentown Glee Club of the Manual Training and Industrial School of New Jersey, which was led by director Frederick J. Work. After initially hearing a performance by the glee club, Charles S. Johnson of Opportunity: Journal of Negro Lifesaid to Barnes that their talent “is certainly the finest singing I ever heard in all my life.”[9] Barnes recognized the importance of educating people not only to appreciate spirituals but also to recognize African Americans as valuable and contributing members of society, especially at a time when many people did not. He wanted to show that the African American “of all social levels is a born artist, poet, musician.”[10] He also liked to point out the frequent use and influence of African music on European styles, especially during the modern, twentieth-century era of music. For example, Barnes claimed that Stravinsky’s  The Rite of Spring was a reflection of African influences, stating that “The primacy of intricate decoration, comparable to the complex rhythmic forms in Negro music, is well illustrated in ‘Le Sacre du Printemps,’ in which the music to the dance is so complicated that no human body could make movements corresponding to all the nuances in the score.”[11]

Orchestral recordings make up the largest percentage of this collection. Laura Barnes may be credited for instilling a love for symphonic music in her husband; the two held season tickets to the Philadelphia Orchestra and, during the years of 1915–1918, they held Sunday musicales at Lauraston, their home in Merion. In 1917, they invited the famed Philadelphia Orchestra conductor Leopold Stokowski and his wife, Olga, to attend. Like many of Dr. Barnes’s relationships, his connection with Stokowski often varied between discord and warmth. Barnes would often encourage Stokowski to program more contemporary music by living composers of the time—such as pianist and first music director of the Barnes Foundation, Nicolas Nabokov— but he would also praise Stokowski for his musical knowledge.[12] Such moments of affinity can be seen with Stokowski’s participation in the 1925 dedication of the Barnes Foundation when, on opening day, he spoke on behalf of the Philadelphia art community.

Within the symphonic recordings, Dr. Barnes’s collection spans all eras and genres of musical styles. While the collection as a whole is somewhat small in comparison to those of avid record collectors, the variety and scope of the contents remain impressive. Albums range from pieces of the medieval and Renaissance eras (Gregorian chants and troubadour songs) and the Baroque (organ music by Bach and Buxtehude), Classical (a great many Mozart recordings), Romantic (Beethoven, Brahms, Liszt, Mendelssohn), and modern eras. This large span of music history reflects the scope of Dr. Barnes’s art collection and his goals for its teaching purposes: to show students the continuity of artistic traditions over time and how these traditions build upon one another.

The art and music of French impressionism provides one initial comparison between the collections of Dr. Barnes. Composers such as Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel, who belonged to the post-Romantic and modern eras, are interesting components of the record collection, not only because they were contemporary to Dr. Barnes, but also because they were composers who, like the impressionist painters, “took risks” and pushed the limits of their craft. Some of those represented include Stravinsky, Hindemith, Krenek, Satie, Scriabin, and the group of Parisian composers known as “Les Six,” with whom Barnes was friendly. Dr. Barnes was often considered to be “a man ahead of his time,” demonstrating an affinity towards those artistic forms and experimentations that broke the traditional standards of the era and favoring the artists who might not have been seen as favorable by others.

Dr. Barnes was constantly pressing Leopold Stokowski to program more modern music with the Philadelphia Orchestra, despite the fact that the public often rejected such compositions. In one instance, after the Orchestra received a scathing review in the Philadelphia Public Ledger for the performance of a program featuring works by expressionist composer Arnold Schoenberg, Barnes wrote a “speech” that he hoped Stokowski would give to audience members in response to these criticisms of his programming choices.[13] He wrote, “It is so easy to condemn and so difficult to shake off the comfort of our easy-going lives, that we are all prone to reject or ridicule what we will not make an effort to understand. That is what our great philosopher William James meant when he said ‘we commend the familiar and condemn what is new and strange.’”[14] Barnes was very passionate about promoting the music of the “here and now.”

One such example of Barnes’s promotion of present-day music can be found in his relationship with musician Nicolas Nabokov [Nabokoff], the same composer whom Barnes pressed Stokowski to program during Philadelphia Orchestra concerts. Nabokov, originally from Russia, arrived at the Foundation in the summer of 1933 as a student and scholarship recipient. By that fall, he was named the director of music education at the Barnes Foundation and gave lectures every other Sunday.[15] Barnes’s hope was that Nabokov would “show that all good modern music is based upon the old traditions” and that he should “illustrate [that] by playing records of old and modern masters.”[16] Some of the records within this collection are believed to have been purchased for Nabokov’s purposes and based upon his suggestions. For example, for his first lecture he proposed “to have a record of Gregorian Music, another if possible of Bali or Javanis [sic] Music.”[17] Nabokov helped Barnes curate his record collection into the diverse one that is represented today.

Besides covering a range of musical eras, Dr. Barnes’s sound recording collection also comprises a wide variety of cultural and genre topics. Folk music is well represented—whether this is in the form of African American spirituals, Chinese folk music, Hawaiian folk music, Yiddish and traditional Hebrew music, German lieder (songs), or a wide variety of other European folk songs. Barnes showed an affinity for French folk music specifically that of the Bretagne coast where he and his wife would vacation. Barnes collected albums by Emile Cueff and his wife, known together as “Les Bardes Bretons,” and maintained a friendly correspondence with them during and after the Second World War.[18] American country music plays a small role—as seen with a variety of albums by the Carter Family and Jimmie Rodgers. Once again, this kind of variety in musical tastes can be considered a reflection of the art collection, as Dr. Barnes wished to expose those who visited and studied at the gallery to what was beyond their immediate frame of mind.

Dr. Barnes passed away in 1951, but the legacy of his love for music continued. Instructors at the Foundation continued to collect and purchase vinyl records to be part of the collection and education program; these are kept in the series marked “Post-1951.” Those albums procured by Dr. Barnes are marked “Pre-1951.” When visiting the Barnes Foundation, one can still see the Magnavox record player located in the north wall of the Gallery. It remains a testament to one of Dr. Barnes’s lesser-known, but equally important, loves: music.

Scope and Contents

This collection ranges in date from 1902 to 1986, and consists of music records (78 rpm shellac-based records and 33 1/3 rpm vinyl LPs) collected by Dr. Albert C. Barnes. There is an approximate total of 204 albums within the collection that equate to 322 discs. They were used within the galleries as teaching aids in his Sunday demonstrations and lectures. It also includes records that were collected and maintained by instructors at the Foundation after Dr. Barnes’s death in 1951.

The albums series consists primarily of albums 1-10 and albums A-G, all of which contain 78 rpm shellac records arranged in a numerical order, with each curated album containing approximately 10-12 records each. The albums series contains approximately 176 discs total, with a mix of 12-inch and 10-inch discs. Most of these album books contain a table of contents located at the front, with the order indicated in Dr. Barnes’s handwriting. It is unclear whether or not Dr. Barnes had arranged these records in a specific order for his lectures or for playing in the galleries, however, each disc includes a corresponding letter and number written in white paint to indicate its placement within the album. This portion of the collection proves to be very eclectic, with albums containing a variety of musical genres, epochs, and performers. Discs range from traditional Chinese, Hawaiian, or Swedish music, to albums recorded for the purpose of teaching children the fundamentals of melody and rhythm, to recordings by Paul Robeson, The Carter Family, and “Le Barde Breton” Emile Cueff. While most of the records in these albums are historic RCA Victor recordings, there are a good portion (such as the Cueff records) that were imported from Europe, belonging to record companies such as Pathé, Disque Gramophone, Polydor (early Deutsche Grammophone), and Columbia Masterworks (from the United Kingdom).

The series Pre-1951, continues with more 78 rpm shellac discs, most of which are symphonic, orchestral recordings ranging in dates from 1923 to 1949. These discs were not arranged or curated in any particular order by Dr. Barnes, so they have been arranged alphabetically by performer. The Pre-1951 series includes approximately 145 total discs, with a mix of 12-inch and 10-inch discs. Within the Pre-1951 series are the subseries (based upon musical genre) for instrumental or vocal recordings.

The series Post-1951, includes those vinyl LP records released and purchased after 1951, the year of Dr. Barnes’s death. Their dates range from 1954 to 1986, they are all 33 1/3 rpm (except for one 7-inch, 45 rpm disc) and 12-inch discs (except for the 45), there is a total of 54 discs, and they are also arranged alphabetically by performer. Subseries within the Post-1951 series are also arranged and categorized by instrumental or vocal recordings.
