About this Item

S.p., July 22, 1940. Typed letter, text on recto only. From the Toscanini estate. Arturo Toscanini wrote this letter to his orchestra upon the completion of a successful South American tour in 1940. He writes: "My dear friends [sic] Tomorrow our trip will be over. To-morrow we will be separated after two months we lived day by day the same life. It is very sad indeed, but that is life. We have never been so linked, all as one, as in these 16 concerts. We must be proud of what we have done. God bless you all." The full text of the letter appears on page 374 of Harvey Sach's The Letters of Arturo Toscanini. This typed copy came from the Toscanini estate, though it is unclear how this particular copy was used. Some indecipherable notes on margins in an unknown hand, a few small various stains, good condition overall. A wonderful piece of Toscanini ephemera. Please contact us for additional photographs or information. Bookseller Inventory # BOX0226
