Extremely rare signature from the Russian refugee conductor dated 1932
Autograph note signed: "S. Jaroff/II/VIII 1932", in black ink, 5x3. Note written in Russian, untranslated. Russian conductor and composer Serge Jaroff (1896-1985) began training at the Moscow Synod School for Choral Singing in his youth, but had to interrupt his studies to serve in the Russian Civil War. After being driven into Crimea by the Red Army and later evacuated into an internment camp, Jaroff formed a choir with Russian refugees in the internment camp. After proving popular with troops and fellow refugees, Jaroff and his choir were shipped to Bulgaria to join a church as their resident choir. They made their formal debut in 1923 as The Don Cossack Choir of Serge Jaroff and soon after began touring internationally, becoming extremely popular in the United States through the 1930's, 1940's, and 1950's. Jaroff became a U.S. citizen after World War II and continued as choir leader until retiring in 1981. Lightly toned. Light creases across. Corners lightly worn and creased. Pencil notes (unknown hand) on verso. Slight dents on left edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
