Sale Price $288.00
Signed autograph note in French urging a musician to flatter the conductor more
Autograph Note signed: "Auber", 4¾x7½. In French, loosely translated: "This evening's rehearsal was again well done, but I foresee that in your case with the conductor you'll have to be more pronounced with humble compliments." Daniel Francois Esprit Auber (1782-1871) was a prominent French opera composer. Among his successful works were Le Macon (1825) and Fra Diavolo (1830). He was a favorite of King Louis Philippe. His La Muette de Porticis (The Mute Girl of Porticis, 1828) contained a song, "Sacred Love of the Homeland," which was promptly embraced as a major patriotic song. When performed in Brussels in 1830, it touched off a riot which sparked the successful revolt for Belgian independence from the Dutch. Unevenly trimmed on left side, slight toning and folding creases across the middle of the page, both horizontally and vertically, slight smudging, nothing affecting signature.
