About this Item

Chinese composer. Signed pamphlet, "Four Pieces for piano solo" (no publisher or year given), a 16-page small 4to in stiff tan wrappers. Near fine. The front cover, which gives the title in English and also in Chinese characters, is nicely inscribed in English "To Mrs. Trevor Bowen / Best wishes / from / Hs Yung-san / 26/10/48 / Yenching University." Trevor Bowen and his wife, Catherine Giltman, were American missionaries in China for many years; she had been a professional pianist in earlier years, studying under Leopold Godowsky and Mark Hambourg, among others, thus had numerous contacts in musical circles. Judging from the titles of the four compositions by Hsu gathered in this collection ("Intermezzo," "Capriccio," "Nocturne" and "Danse"), his music has a strong Western influence! Very unusual.
