About this Item

1 page. Small octavo. Paris, no date. In ink, on one side of a blue "Télégram" form. In French (with translation). Chabrier writes regarding a cancelled concert for want of a baritone, the impresario [Léon] Carvalho, the singer [Gabriel] Soulacroix, and another unnamed singer who has a "beautiful voice" and with whom he is working. Finally, he implores Mendès to come to his home and lend his support. Torn at edges with slight loss to text and signature. Together with: A 2-page letter from Mendès, possibly in reply to the above, addressed to "My dear collaborator." No place, no date. "It goes without saying that my suggestions do not obligate you to anything. You are the master." Mendès asks that Chabrier include some silence while the character is speaking. Mendès (1841-1909) wrote the libretto to Chabrier's opera Gwendoline, first performed in Brussels in 1886; the work evidenced pronounced Wagnerian influences. Bookseller Inventory # 27234
