ROBERT FIZDALE
Fizdale wrote this Christmas letter on a souvenir card from Rome, Italy in 1969: "How we shall miss our Christmas morning together!" We're not certain who the recipients were, but whoever they were, Fizdale thought highly of them, writing, "More than any two people we know, you two bring more beauty and joy into the world in the true since of the Christmas spirit, than any others."
Autograph letter signed "Arthur/&/Bobby" in blue ink. 1 page, 8½x6¼ unfolded, 4¼x6¼ folded, souvenir card printed with Roman ruins on front. Rome, Italy, Dec. 20, 1969, with added note: "(We return Jan. 3)". Addressed to "Frank and Bill". In full: "Dearest Frank and Bill - How we shall miss our Christmas morning together! We think of you often - have discussed you with intense passione [sic] with your other Roman worshippers - Sheila, Alexei, Carmen & the Roberts. (We're almost like a pagan Roman cult with our own private gods!) This card brings you every good wish for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. More than any two people we know, you two bring more beauty and joy into the world in the true since of the Christmas spirit, than any others. With 'all love' from". Based on other letters we've read from Fizdale, "Frank and Bill" are possibly FRANK PESCHKA and BILL MURDOCK, founders of New York City's Little Players theatre company. Fizdale often spoke glowingly of the Little Players. ROBERT FIZDALE (1920-1995, born in Chicago, Illinois) and ARTHUR GOLD (1917-1990, born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada) met while students at Juilliard. The partners helped transform the duo-piano repertory by commissioning and performing many new works. They appeared on a stage and on a number of recordings and were nominated for a 1963 Grammy Award for Best Chamber Music Performance. Fizdale and Gold also authored the book, The Divine Sarah (1991), a biography of Sarah Bernhardt, the first international superstar. Lightly toned and creased. Otherwise in fine condition.
