ANTON RUBINSTEIN
Handwritten letter in French by the Russian composer, saying "I beg of you to let me know immediately what is the truth about the matter - for I have some reason to suppose that it is a humbug"
Autograph Letter signed: "Ant. Rubinstein", 1 page, 4½x7. London, England, January 11. Written to "My dear Gerard" in full (loosely translated from French): "I have just read the enclosed advertisement regarding my "Nero". I beg of you to let me know immediately what is the truth about the matter - for I have some reason to suppose that it is a humbug - and I should want to rectify the matter publicly unless, indeed, you have made some engagement of which I do not know. All to you" Anton Rubinstein (1829-1894, born in Wechwotynetz, Russia, now in Transnistria, Republic of Moldova) founded and directed the St. Petersburg Conservatory of Music (1862-1867, 1887-1891). A virtuoso pianist and prolific composer, Rubinstein wrote several operas, including operas Feramors (1863), Dmitry Donskoy (1852) and Sibirskiye okhotniki (Siberian Huntmsen, 1854), six symphonies, five piano concertos for piano and numerous songs and chamber works. Normal mailing fold. Lightly worn. Lightly soiled. Tape on verso (no show through). Otherwise, fine condition.
