About this Item

American composer well-known for "By the Waters of Minnetonka" who specialized in preserving the music of North American Indians and using their themes in his own work. ALS, 2pp, 8½" X 11", n.p. [Wichita, KS], n.d. [1927 April 30]. Addressed to John G. Leiser. Advice to a musician and wanna-be composer, reading in part: "Discouragement only makes us mad and we fight. We have good health and reserve. I get no 'kick' out of being ever traditiona and I like to create and paraphrase, dramatize is necessary. When I sell I do not write and hope but go to the source and let personality stand in the way of refusal. Build sure & slow and remember you arrive at 40 yrs seldom before in creative work. I hope we can appear in or even near you. Would just like to look you over." With original envelope, addressed in Lieurance's hand. Accompanied by a 9" X 12" pictorial promotional leaflet for the Lieurances. Great content from the famed Indianist movement composer. Bookseller Inventory # 31007
