Complimentary handwritten note from the composer: "You really are a lively soul"
Autograph Note signed: "J. Massenet", 1p, 7¼x4½. Blue pencil note (unknown hand) at left edge dates the note 1903 November 17. To an unnamed recipient. In French, translated in full: "You really are a lively soul and at the same time, so reflective./ How dear of you to remember a friend like me after so many years!". 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.Lower edge ragged. Blue pencil note (unknown hand) at left margin. Slight surface creases. Lightly toned. Vertical fold not affecting signature. Otherwise, fine condition.
