ALFRED-DENIS CORTOT
Signature of Cartot in blue ink
Signature: "Al Cortot". 4¾x1¼-cut unevenly. French pianist and conductor Alfred-Denis Cortot (1877-1962) enjoyed considerable success as a conductor, leading the first Paris performance of Gotterdammerung (May 1902) and following it with a respectable Tristan (June 1902). In 1905, he formed the Cortot-Thibaud-Casals trio and Cortot was also a popular solo performer across Europe and in the U.S. He is best known for his mastery of Romantic music, especially Schumann, although he was also acclaimed for his interpretations of Chopin, Beethoven's concertos and Wagner. Cortot, who was a professor of piano at the Paris Conservatoire from 1907-1917, was also an avid collector of musical memorabilia, including musical autographs, original manuscripts, letters, portraits and printed music. After his death, the most of the printed music, including some that was quite rare, was distributed to the British Museum, the Newberry Library in Chicago and the University of California at Berkeley. Important manuscripts were also purchased for the Lehmann Foundation in the Pierpont-Morgan Library in New York City. Toned and soiled. ½" notch at center top edge. Lower edged trimmed unevenly. Pencil note (unknown hand) above signature. Adhesive residue on verso.
