FRANZ LEHAR. Autograph Musical Quotation signed: "Lehar Franz," 1p, 5¼x3½. Vienna, 1927 February 4. The composer has penned bars of music titled by him: "Paganini", which was first performed in 1925. Hungarian violinist and composer Franz Lehár (1870-1948) was a major figure in the revival of Viennese light opera at the beginning of the 20th century. His work, The Merry Widow (1905), popularized operetta in the U.S. and also became Hitler's favorite stage work. As a military bandmaster before and during WWI, he composed several marches. During the 1920s, Lehár incorporated new styles of popular music, including American blues, into his compositions, and began composing film scores. The composer, despite having a Jewish wife, remained in Vienna during World WII, avoiding politics. Mounting remnants on verso, light show through at corners. Fine condition.
