Lotte Lehmann sends an autograph note on a picture postcard of thanks for the birthday wishes.
Autograph Note Signed: "Lotte", 3½x5½ picture postcard of the Yacht Harbor, Santa Barbara, California. In full: "Dearest Ernô- Thank you for remembering my birthday! 76! It not as dreadful to be so old! But I feel very much younger! Much love for you and Malvina. Ever yours" Hand addressed: "Mr. Ernô Balogh/3040 Idaho" Last lines of address obstructed by metered mailing strip. Postmarked Santa Barbara, California, 1964 February 29. 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. Cancellation stamp touches five words still legible. Lightly worn at corners. Otherwise, fine condition.
