About this Item

Wrote one music historian, "When the history of music in Michigan shall be properly written, few men will be found who have more indelibly stamped their individuality and genius upon their period and their community than has Ottokar Malek, of Grand Rapids"; this Czech-born concert pianist and composer came to the U.S. in 1902 and founded the Malek School of Music in 1914. AMuQS, 1p, 5" X 4", Chicago, IL, 1905 February 20. Very good. Light even age toning; mounted to heavy album leaf. Tipped to the upper left corner is a tiny printed name/address portion from Malek's letterhead. Several measures of music notation handsomely penned in deep brown ink. Above this, Malek pens, "Chopin, Fantasie Fenoll," while below it he pens, "Chicago, 20. Februar 1905. / Fraulein Fanny Neumann / zur freundlichen Erinnerung / an / Ottokar Malek." Beautifully accomplished -- most attractive. Bookseller Inventory # 22377
