Virtuoso pianist, composer, music teacher & inventor Josef Hofmann (1876-1957) signed and inscribed this musical quotation to Henry S. Chapman in Aiken, S. C. in 1922 on a 3 1/4" x 5 1/4" slip of paper. As a composer, Hofmann published over 100 works, many of those under the pseudonym Michel Dvorsky. He became a US citizen in 1926 and was the first head of the piano department of the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia and became the Institute's director in 1927. Contemporaries such as Rachmaninoff, Ignaz Friedman, and Godowsky considered Hofmann to be, overall, the greatest pianist of their generation. Condition: Some sort of yellow stain in the upper right corner that does not affect the musical quotation or the inscription and autograph; otherwise good condition. Bookseller Inventory #
