FRANZ LEHÁR. Photograph inscribed and signed: "À Monsieur Robert/sympathies de/Lehár Franz/Paris/5.5.1933" in French. B/w, 6½x8¾. Photograph by Ernst Schneider, Berlin. 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 The Merry Widow (1905) popularized operetta in the U.S. and but also became Hitler's favorite stage work. As a military bandmaster before and during WWI, Lehár composed several marches. During the 1920s, he 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 WWII, avoiding politics. Light 1¾-inch crease from upper edge touches forehead. Lightly silvered near edges. Overall, fine condition.
