JULES MASSENET
Letter from the composer (1899) written "in the country," assuring a friend that he will be at the next meeting
Autograph Letter signed: "Massenet", 1p, 4½x7. "à la campagne" [in the country], 1899 June 20. To "My great friend". In French, translated in full: "We are far, far from Paris, in complete solitude - but your letter found its way, and I am always happy to be remembered by you whom I admire so much. I will be at the next meeting. All the best to you!". French composer Jules Massenet (1842-1912) made his name with the comic opera Don César de Bazan (1872). Other operas followed, including Manon (1884), considered by many to be his masterpiece, Le Cid (1885) and Werther (1892). In addition to his ambitious operas and orchestral works, Massenet wrote over 200 popular songs, many of them based on published poems. In 1899, the same year he wrote this letter, Massenet purchased a home in Egreville, in the Department of Seine et Marne, and spent summers there with his wife Ninon. It was probably from his new home in Egreville that Massenet wrote this letter. Horizontal folds. Lightly toned at edges. Otherwise, fine condition.
