Lotte Lehmann sends an autograph letter about a book possibly being published in 1964 on Strauss for his 100th birthday.
Autograph Letter Signed: "Lotte", 3¼p, front and verso two separate sheets, 8½x11 personal letterhead. Hope Ranch Park, Santa Barbara, California, 1963 February 9. To: "Dearest Ernô-" In full: "The book has first to be translated. It is even possible that it will come out 1964, because that is Strauss's 100 birthday - and it may be clever to have it out then! The title may be (not quite decided yet) 'Give Operas and Richard Strauss.' - Frances was in N. Y. only a short time, only for Grace Bunnberry's recital. She is all right - and we live in great and never disturbed harmony. Eric and There live here, I bought a house for them. He is not well at all, had 8 years ago a stroke and is paralysed (sic) on his left side. But he reaches a little but - suffering rather many ills of old age. He will be 81 in June... Therese (whom he married as I am sure you know) takes care of him and does the work of three Nurses aid and housekeepers. I never can understand how she does it. Without her he would be lost. Pleases remember me to Malvina and, take very much love for yourself - Ever yours" Fold creases not near signature. Fine condition. Included hand addressed mailing envelope 9½x4: "Airmail/Mr. Ernô Balogh/3040 Idaho Avenue N. W./Washington 16, D. C." Postmarked Santa Barbara, California, 1963 February 9. Lightly worn at edges. Postmark touching "h" of Balogh. Otherwise, fine condition. German soprano Lotte Lehmann (1888-1976) one of the most eminent lyric dramatic sopranos of her day made her Metropolitan Opera debut on January 11, 1934 as Sieglinde in Die Walküre. A month later, Lehmann performed on Arturo Toscanini's first radio broadcast (The Cadillac Hour, February 11, 1934). She was renowned for her interpretations of Mozart, Wagner and the songs of Schumann. Lotte Lehmann would retire from the recital stage in 1951. She would then teach master classes at the Music Academy of the West (which she helped found) in Santa Barbara, California, and Lehmann would also give master classes in a number of other cities in the U.S. and abroad.
