Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy Autograph musical manuscript

26 Aug

Prodigiously gifted German Romantic composer (1809–1847). His musical output represents virtually every form and genre of the era, ranging from piano and chamber music to symphonies and other orchestral music to such large-scale choral masterpieces. Unsigned autograph musical manuscript, one page, 8 x 3, no date. Mendelssohn pens seven bars from his lied “Der wandernde Musikant,” which he titles at the top, and adds the lyrics of all three stanzas in between the staves. In fine condition, with a central vertical fold, light overall wrinkling, and slight show-through at corners from mounting remnants to reverse. Mendelssohn material is quite rare and this is the first manuscript or AMQS of any type that we have encountered—a truly remarkable piece. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
