Johannes Brahms Autograph Letter Signed

09 Feb

ALS in German, signed “JB,” one page, 5.25 x 3, February 3, 1887. Letter to a correspondent in Berlin, in part: “If my reservations on the variations seem valid to you and if you are even partly in agreement, then I request you urgently not to put off the changes and not to publish the catalogue without them! For instance in the Paganini variations it must really be laughable. Between ourselves, I believe Bulow is about to sign with Pollini and additionally to take over the concerts in Bremen, for one year in the first instance. Then nothing would come of Berlin. He is in excellent spirits, is doing marvelous work, and gave us a fine evening yesterday in the Tonkunstler-Verein.” In fine condition, with some brushing to ink. In addition to establishing the successes of Wagner and Liszt, German conductor Hans von Bulow did the same for Brahms, working diligently to elevate the reputation of a composer he so graciously inserted into the ‘Three Bs’ lineup with Bach and Beethoven. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA.
