THEODORE RITTER
The French composer and pianist signs this card dated 1869
Signature: "Théodore Ritter/Chicago 10 Déc 69" in black ink. 5x2¾. Theodore Ritter (1841-1886) was a French composer and pianist. He was born Theodore Bennett, the son of a ship merchant who also was an amateur musician. Studying under Franz Liszt, he was known for an agile playing style. Ritter showed talent at an early age sparking the interest of well-known composers such as Hector Berlioz. Ritter transposed Berlioz' "Roméo et Juliette" for the piano. In 1869 Ritter embarked on a tour of the United States and Canada with well-known operatic soprano Carlotta Patti and violinist Frantz Jehin-Prume. One of his best known compositions was "Les Courriers". Toned. Bottom right corner creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
