Interesting letter to a journalist, concerning Delannoy's incidental music for François Poché's adaptation of Aristophanes' Peace (La Paix). Delannoy was frustrated because his role as composer had not been mentioned in the reviews of the successful production at Charles Dullin's Théâtre de l'Atelier in January 1932: "Je suis très étonné par les critiques faites sur la Paix, qui constatent le succès de l'œuvre et ne mentionnent même pas mon nom. Sans rien exagérer, il me semble que ma musique contribue dans une certaine part à ce succès". Therefore, he asks the recipient to write an article about his music: "Vous serait-il possible d'écrire un papier la-dessus : 'La musique, à l'Atelier'". Delannoy complains about music critics who "do not want to know anything but opera and comical opera" and suggests that the recipient remind his readers of similar compositions for dramatic works, such as Auric's 'Les oiseaux' and Milhaud's 'Le château des papes'. A list of the principal pieces of the composition follows.
Somewhat creased and duststained. With a rubbed spot at the address, effacing the name of the recipient.
