(MUNCH, CHARLES; KRIPS, ALFRED; MAZZEO, ROSARIO; CECCI, JESSE; SILVERSTEIN, JOSEPH; ET AL).
[Boston Symphony Orchestra]: Autographs of over 45 Eminent Guests & Musicians Attending a Dinner Party in Honor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra Hosted by Charles Douglas Jackson and His Wife Grace Bristed Jackson at the Dakota in New York City . Included Among the Autographs Are Those of Conductor Charles Munch, Clarinetist Rosario Mazzeo, Violinists Alfred Krips, Jesse Ceci and Joseph Silverstein.
New York, NY: The Dakota 1956. 1956. - Seven pages with over forty-five autographs penned on both sides of 4 gilt-edged, cream-colored sheets measuring 10-3/4 inches high by 8-3/4 inches wide, removed from the guest book of Grace Bristed Jackson and C. D. Jackson. Dated "Friday Dec. 14th 1956", the signatures are identified along the top as those of guests present at a "Supper Party for Boston Symphony Orchestra" held at the Dakota in New York City. Most, if not all, of the guests have penned inscriptions expressing their appreciation to the Jackson's above their signatures. There is a short tear to the top edge of the first sheet, not affecting any of the signatures. Near fine. The dinner was held to celebrate the orchestra's historic tour in September to the Soviet Union and would culminate in an 8:30 PM concert by the BSO at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. Charles Douglas Jackson [known as "C.D."] and his wife Grace Bristed Jackson hosted parties and events at their apartment in the Dakota. Jackson worked on and off at Time magazine in an administrative capacity for many years and was made vice president of Time, Inc. in 1940. He was periodically sent on various diplomatic missions by Eisenhower. He also found time to serve on the boards of several organizations, including the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Free Europe Committee and Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. The signatures in the order in which they appear on the sheets are those of: The Boston Symphony Orchestra's director Charles Munch (1891-1968) who has additionally penned "avec tant d'emotion et une si grande reconnaissance". The Alsacian symphonic conductor and violinist Charles Munch was highly regarded for his mastery of French orchestral music. He was director of the Boston Symphony Orchestra from 1949 through 1962 and, under his leadership, the BSO was the first U.S. Orchestra to perform in the Soviet Union in September of 1956. Margo Miller who wrote articles on the BSO's Russia tour for the Berskshire Eagle has penned the following "Better than Leningrad-Moscow" above her autograph. George E. Judd, manager of the BSO from 1935-1954. Tod & Helen Perry. Tod Perry managed the BSO from 1954-1973 and was executive director from 1973-1978. Tod penned the following above his signature: "There are two people without WHOM the Russia trip would not have been the same - Grace & CD - Bless them both!!!: and his wife Helen penned "Since I didn't reach Leningrad, you have given the same fabulous effect. With loving thanks". Lillian Judd. The American clarinetist Rosario Mazzeo (1911-1997) has penned "For our Gracie, The best trooper of all!" signed "Rosario Mazzeo". The designer of the Mazzeo system of clarinet keywork, Mazzeo played for the Boston Symphony Orchestra from 1933 to 1966 and was also the orchestra's personnel manager for much of that period. He chaired the woodwind department at the New England Conservatory of Music. Mazzeo's wife, the harpsichordist Katie Clare Mazzeo has additionally penned the following inscription above her signature: "To Gracie - who took such good care of R.M. in USSR!" George E. Moleux, principal double bass player. Leonard G. Moss, a violinist for 43 years with the BSO. The orchestra's first harpist Bernard Zighera and what appears to be the signature of his wife Georgette. Horn player Harry Shapiro. Leonard S. Burkat, Munch's assistant who wrote the program notes for nearly 15,000 works. Principal trombonist William Gibson. Violinist Jesse Ceci (1924-2006) who, as a child prodigy, began his studies with a full scholarship to the Curtis Institute of Music at 8 years old. He went on to study at Juilliard, the Paris Conservatory, and L'Ecole Normale de Musique which he attended on a Fulbright scholarship. Ceci went on to debut at Alice Tully Hall in NYC and performed under most of the major conductors. He gave numerous benefit performances in support of major causes including the Colorado AIDS Project and "Afghan Ed" which helped young Afghan girls return to school after having been oppressed by the Taliban. The following inscription is signed by a guest who has signed his name in Cyrillic letters: "Many thanks for the chandeliers, champagne & memories of happy (?) days in Russia - not to mention Helsinki & Prague". Viola player Earl Hedberg. First chair viola player Vincent Mauricci Violinist Herman Silberman. Violinist Gottfried J. Wilfinger. Louis Speyer, who played the English horn for the BSO from 1918-1964. Violinist Stanley Benson. Violinist Joseph Leibovici. [?] de V. [?].

Violinist Alfred Schneider. Principal Second Violinist William Marshall. Cellist Mischa Nieland. Violinist Samuel Diamond. American violinist and conductor Joseph "Joey" Silverstein (1932-2015). Silverstein first studied from his father and subsequently Efrem Zimbalist, D.C. Dounis, William Primrose, Josef Gingold and Mischa Mischakoff. He joined the BSO as second violinist in 1955 and was the youngest musician in the orchestra. He was appointed concertmaster in 1962 and assistant conductor in 1971.

The Gal in Blue! [Broadside Song Sheet].
Salem, Massachusetts: Joshua Peckham, [between 1852 and 1858]. [1858]. [1858]. - A 9-1/2 inch high by 6-1/2 inch wide broadside song sheet with the lyrics of the minstrel song "The Gal in Blue!" centered beneath the bold title within a formal decorated frame. The lyrics of the three stanzas and chorus, written in dialect, begin "I met a pretty yaller gall, her name I do not know, / I meet her every evening, no matter where I go, / She swings de fancy handkerchief that sparkes like the dew, / You'd know her if you seen her, she's always dressed in blue.." To which the chorus responds "She'll set dis darkey crazy, I don't know what to do, / If I can't get dat pretty gal dat I saw dressed in blue. / She'll set dis darkey crazy, I don't know what to do, / If I don't get dat pretty gal dat I saw dressed in blue." The publisher's credits are centered below the lyrics. The song sheet is toned with some heavy dampstaining. Good. The song sheet is "Published by permission of John H. Duley, of Perham's Opera Troupe". Perham is possibly the same person as Josiah Perham of the "Ethiopian Troupe and Great Burlesque Company", a blackface troupe. Good .

Maggio Musicale Fiorentino. 24 Aprile - 4 Giugno / 1935 - XIII. (Program)
Firenze: Grafiche G. Spinelli & C. 1935. 1935. Firenze: Grafiche G. Spinelli & C. 1935. 1935. Very good. - Octavo. Program for the 1935 season of this music festival bound by an owner in three-quarters dark green calf & decorative dark green & tan boards titled in gilt on the spine, with the original printed wrappers bound in. The boards are bumped darkened around the edges with a light stain to the front board. The leather is rubbed. The spine is faded & chipped with a piece out of the head & the top half of the front joint is split. [204] unnumbered pages. Illustrated with a double-page color map of Florence, with portraits & stage designs in color and black & white & with pictorial ads. The inside wraps are lightly foxed, else the program contents are very good.

This music festival presented choral and orchestral music, operas and ballets. Among the works presented in the 1935 season were Rameau's "Castor and Pollux"; Rossini's "Mose"; the ballet "Dafni e Chloe" starring Lorcia and Lifar, with choreography by Fokine and scenery by Bakst; Pizzetti's "Orseolo", Verdi's "Masked Ball" and his "Requiem" with Pinza, Caniglia and Stignani; Mozart's "Il Ratto dal Serraglio" and his "Requiem"; Rino Alessi's play "Savonarola, directed by Jacques Copeau, with incidental music by Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco; Bellini's "Norma" and Gluck's "Alceste". Conductors included Vittorio Gui, Tullio Serafin, Bruno Walter and Fernando Previtale. The program notes and synopses are printed in both Italian and English.

Mario Castelnuovo- Tedesco [1895-1968], who became a well-known composer of film music, was considered one of the most significant Italian composers of his generation and was performed by such artists as Gieseking, Heifetz, Piatigorsky and Segovia. Although he was critical of Mussolini's regime, he knew how to take advantage of the opportunities it offered and he wrote the incidental music for "Savonarola" at Mussolini's request. He was a friend both of Carlo and Nello Rosselli, the regime's principal opponents [both assassinated in 1937], and of Alessandro Pavolino, who later became a fanatical fascist leader.

On the inside front cover of the book, the owner has penned an "Operatic Diary" listing 31 operas attended, with theatres, dates, composers and in some cases conductors.

Rare. Very good .

L'ALLEMAND, PAULINE. (1856-1944). AMERICAN OPERATIC SOPRANO.
Autograph Musical Quote from "Lakme", Perhaps Her Most Significant Role, Penned by American Soprano Pauline L'Allemand.
Philadelphia, PA: 19th November, 1886. 1886. - Nine bars of music penned on a six-sided piece of cream paper with the text written in English below the music. Inscribed "in kind remembrance of Pauline l'Allemand / Philadelphia 19th Nov 86." There is a diagonal crease & a light paper-clip mark near the left side of the paper. Its left edge is darkened. There are 3 light glue marks & surface rubbing to the verso where the paper has been removed from an album. Very good.

Pauline l'Allemand gave the first American performance of Delibes' opera "Lakme" at the Academy of Music in Philadelphia on November 17, 1886. This quotation from the opera, which was sung in English, was thus penned two days after the opening.

Born in Syracuse, NY, Pauline l'Allemand [1856-1944) made her debut as an operatic soprano in Stratton's "The Fairy Grotto" at Wieting Opera House in her home town. She subsequently studied singing in Dresden, Stuttgart and Paris. After successfully touring in Europe, she returned to America, performing "Lakme" in Philadelphia. After her attempt to create her own opera company failed, she retired to a farm in Black River Falls, Wisconsin with her grown son. They lived in extreme poverty and both were eventually pronounced insane and in 1920 were remanded to the Mendota State Hospital for the insane in Madison, Wisconsin. L'Allemand was memorialized in the cult classic "Wisconsin Death Trip" by Charles Van Schaick and Michael Lesy.
