Autograph Note signed: "I can not see any neither/Yours as ever/IStr/March 25-65", 1 page, 8½x11. He has circled a sentence in the typed letter to indicate he is responding to it. Handwritten in red ink at bottom of a typed letter from "Arnold" [Weissberger], dated March 25, on letterhead of Weissberger & Frosch, Counselors at Law, New York, N.Y. Weissberger (1907-1981), a theatrical lawyer, discusses various business matters and asks if Stravinsky would object to the use of a published cartoon in a production of WGBH [Boston Public Television]. Russian-born composer IGOR STRAVINSKY (1882-1971) was perhaps the greatest classical composer of the 20th century. Stravinsky, who lived in France following WWI before coming to the U.S. in 1939, wrote operas, including Firebird (1910), Petrushka (1911) and The Rite of Spring (1913), neoclassical works and such religious-inspired pieces as Symphony of Psalms (1930). Stravinsky became a naturalized American citizen in 1949. He also collaborated on several books, including his autobiography Chronicles of My Life in 1936. Regarding the double negative in Stravinsky's ANS, the composer arrived in the US at age 58 and struggled to master English. He persisted, however, eventually becoming well versed in English literature and quite skilled at the game of Scrabble. Normal mailing folds.
