Pasdeloup, Jules, French conductor (1819-1887). 2 autograph letters signed.

Paris and n. p., [ca. 1880 and n. d.].

8vo. Together 2 pp.


A letter to the pianist and composer Alphonse Duvernoy (1842-1907) can be dated to 1880/81, as it concerns a performance of Duvernoy's symphonic poem "La Tempête". Pasdeloup tells Duvernoy that Jean-Baptiste Faure agrees with him that not only a "fragment of the Tempête" should be performed but the entire piece. "La Tempête" was first performed by Faure and Pasdeloup's competitor Éduard Colonne in 1880.

The second letter is to invite an unidentified recipient to a party: "nous comptons sur vous pour lundi prochain au cercle, cette fois vous serez de la fête n'est ce pas". In a short postscript, Pasdeloup mentions that the pianist Alexis-Henri Fissot will perform.

The letter to Duvernoy on stationery with printed address. The second letter on mourning paper. Both with traces of old restorations.
