Diémer, Louis, composer and pianist (1843-1919). 2 autograph letters signed.

[Paris], 11 March (no year).

8vo. (2+2½ =) 4½ pp. on 2 bifolia.


To the pianist Madame Duchanoy, concerning a meeting to play some music together. Diémer proposes a date for the session and adds some words advertising his transcription of the Oberon overture (by C. M. von Weber) for two pianos, as well as excuses for his lack of time due to a concert at the "Salle Érard": "Je serai bien ravi de faire un peu de musique avec vous [...] J'ai transcrit pour 2 pianos, l'ouverture D'Oberon [...]" (11 March). In the second letter Diémer wishes to change the hour of the rehearsal with Mme Duchanoy, as he has a further appointment to give a music lesson at the instrument maker Érard’s place: "Voulez-vous avoir l'extrême obligeance de répéter à 3 h aujourd'hui? Je suis attendu à 4 h. chez Érard pour donner une leçon [...]".

Both with blind-embossed monogram "LD" and traces of old mounting on verso. Some browning to the upper edge.
