    • Note Bibliografiche: 8vo and 12mo. Together 7½ pp. Three shorter letters in the collection are of a practical nature, asking for or granting theatre tickets. In a letter from 4 May 1858 to the "Association des artistes dramatiques", Cisserant announces his resignation from the committee of the association because of an accident and lack of time. - On 14 July 1862, Cisserant informed a friend that the Odéon cannot hire a Mademoiselle Blainville even though he was impressed by her: "J'ai vue et entendue Mlle Blainville.

    • Note Bibliografiche: 4to. 1 page. To the musician Frederick Allan Wilshire (1868-1944) with thanks for an invitation, but politely having to decline it: "Thank you very much for Your kind invitation. But I fear it is doubtful if I can come to Bristol even for the performance [...] November is a very busy month for me I am so sorry [...]". - From the 1930s until the early 1950s Vaughan Williams lived in Dorking and was an initiator of the "Dorking and District Refugee Committee", providing music for the Abinger Pageant to raise funds for Abinger church.

    • Note Bibliografiche: 8vo. Together 7 pp. on bifolia. With 1 autograph envelope. The charming dated letter to an unnamed friend was to congratulate him on his wife and to introduce a singer named Violet Clarke: "D'abord toutes mes chaleureuses félicitations pour la belle et aimable femme, que j'espère avoir le plaisir d'entendre un de ces jours. Voici une charmante amie à moir, Miss Violet Clarke. Elle chante bien et a une jolie voix. Met toi à ses ordres. Tâche de lui être utile, et ton vieux copain te sera reconnaisant [!]". - The second letter to a Miss Edwards, according to the envelope, is a curious mix of ... continua a leggere

    • Note Bibliografiche: Zusammen 5 SS. 8vo und qu.-12mo (115:90 mm). Im Brief vom 21. Oktober 1886 kündigt Stockhausen einem engen Freund namens François, wohl aus Stockhausens Zeit an der komischen Oper in Paris, die Zuschrift seiner Publikation "Julius Stockhausen's Gesangstechnik und Stimmbildung" (Leipzig: Peters, 1886) an und bittet um Anmerkungen für die in wenigen Wochen erscheinende Neuauflage: "Dans peu de semaines il doit paraître une nouvelle édition dans la même forme, de sorte qu'on pourra ajouter ou retrancher ce qui est superflu et ce qui manque. Peux tu nous aider un peu?" Er berichtet vom Erfolg s... continua a leggere

    • Note Bibliografiche: 12mo. 1 p. With autograph address. In French. Beautiful pneumatic letter to the conductor Roger Désormière written two days after the scandalous premiere of the ballet Mercure with instructions for the third performance. Satie asks Désormière to return to the original version of the premiere "without the repetitions of the music while waiting for the sets", as he is "the one who pays the price for this waiting time" because "many people believe" that Satie's "music is the cause of these false intermissions - & and they 'fulminate', the very good people". He even concedes to his vocal critic... continua a leggere

    • Note Bibliografiche: 8vo and oblong 8vo. Together 10½ pp. Interesting collection of letters spanning three decades, including a passionate plea for artistic freedom. This plea is part of an undated letter that was probably addressed to the writer and theatre director Paul Ginisty. After congratulating the recipient on a representation of Corneille's Cid, Saint-Saëns writes at length about authorship and artistic ingenuity, dismissing the possibility of "machine art" and describing a "special cerebral state" during the production of a work of art that "ends forever when the work is finished". In closing, Saint-S... continua a leggere

    • Note Bibliografiche: 8vo. 2 pp. on bifolium. With autograph envelope. In Russian. Insightful letter to the Russian-French journalist Michel Delines in Nice, concerning rehearsals in Brussels, obligations in St Petersburg, and the possibility of staging his operas at La Monnaie in Brussels under the forthcoming directorate of Maurice Kufferath. Rimsky-Korsakov was rehearsing "daily the programme of the concert" after which he would have to return to St Petersburg, as he was "obliged to attend the rehearsals of two symphony concerts", complaining that, "as a professor at the Conservatory", he is "always busy and ... continua a leggere

    • Note Bibliografiche: 8vo and folio. 1 p. and 3¼ pp. Blue ink on 20-stave paper, 4 systems of 3 staves per page. The letter to a M. Dauret, asking him to fill out and return an attached form. - The manuscript is a copy Rynaldo's aria "Viens ! Mon seul amour, c'est toi !" (finale of the 2nd act) from Richepin's last composition, the operetta "L'Auberge qui chante". Completely forgotten today, the operetta premiered on 4 October 1941 at the Gaîté Lyrique in Paris with André Dassary as Rynaldo. As the piece was considered to represent the "new style" imposed by the Vichy regime, it was dropped entirely from the pro... continua a leggere

    • Note Bibliografiche: 8vo. 1 page. To the musician Frederick Allan Wilshire (1868-1944). Newman is unable to provide information on Wagner Societies in England and gives an outline of the work that preoccupied him at the time: "I am glad to hear of the formation of your Wagner Society, and wish it good luck and long life. I don't know whether there are any other Wagner Societies still in existence in England. I would suggest your asking the Musical Times [...] I have completely given up lecturing: I have about a dozen books on hand, and I have had do give up every form of activity that draws upon the time I need... continua a leggere

The letter to an unnamed recipient, possibly the writer Édouard-Auguste Spoll, asking him to authorize the composer J.-M. Mayan to use a portrait of her for his publication "Le Chant et la voix, étude complète de l'art lyrique" (Paris, 1891): "Monsieur Mayan m'écrit que vous voulez bien lui accorder l'autorisation de se servir pour sa méthode de chant d'un portrait que vous avez publié lors de ma biographie. Si vous n'éprouvez aucun inconvénient je vous serai très obligé de lui accorder cette autorisation." Spoll is the author of the ... continua a leggere

A letter to a Plouvier (not the librettist Édouard Plouvier, 1820-76) can be dated after 1879, as Membrée mentions a performance of his opera "La Courte Échelle" that had premiered on 10 March 1879 at the Opéra-Comique: "Merci, mon cher Plouvier, pour votre affectueux souvenir auquel j'ai été très sensible. Je compte vous faire tous mes compliments la première fois que je vous verrai, en même temps que je vous dirai tous nos regrets de ne vous avoir pas vu le jour de la Courte-Échelle. Oh ! mais ...

    • Note Bibliografiche: Small 8vo. 2½ pp. on bifolium. With autograph envelope. Highly interesting letter to Philippe Gille, concerning the libretto for Léo Delibes' posthumous opera "Kassya", based on a novella by Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, co-authored by Meilhac and Gille. Meilhac tells Gille that it would not be worth the trouble visiting him in Paris, as he is working "like a horse" and will probably lock himself up for "four days". Thus, he directly conveys "word for word the observations of Delibes", who had died a few months earlier. Most of Delibes' observations appear to ask for certain scenes to be set i... continua a leggere

In an interesting letter to the composer Victor Massé, Marmontel congratulates his colleague at the Paris Conservatory on a cantata by his student Paul Puget: "Mes cordiales félicitations pour la belle Cantate de Puget. On reconnait dans l'ensemble et les détails de cette partition l'excellente direction du maître, et le brillant élève vous fait grand honneur. [...]". The cantata in question is very likely "Mazeppa", which won Puget the Prix de Rome in 1873. - The second letter to an unnamed administrator at the Conservatory concerns the organisation of upc... continua a leggere
