(CHAVEZ, CARLOS; 1899-1978). GARA, EMMERICH
A Lively Black & White Portrait of the Mexican Composer & Conductor Carlos Chavez Rehearsing on an Outdoor Stage in Front of Scaffolding
(Ellenville, NY, Summer), (1956). (1956). (Ellenville, NY, Summer), (1956). (1956). Fine. - sc - A powerful 14 inch high by 11 inch wide photograph by Emmerich Gara depicting the Mexican composer and conductor Carlos Chavez conducting from a crude podium set up in front of scaffolding. Depicted in three quarter profile from the hip up, Chavez leans forth with furrowed brow while conducting with his hands. Attired in a white sweater tucked into his pants with a colorful scarf tucked into his sweater, the conductor is posed in front of the white tarps punctuated with colorful lines which drape the background. Scaffolding rises up from behind Chavez at right of the image. Photographed by Cellist Emmerich Gara, with his name & address stamped on the verso of the photograph. Signed by Gara in pencil on the verso. Fine.

The Mexican composer and conductor Carlos Antonis de Padua Chavez y Ramirez (1899-1978) was a music theorist, educator, as well as a journalist. He founded the Mexican Symphony Orchestra and was also its director. Influenced by Mexican culture, his second symphony, the highly popular "Sinfonia India", uses native Yaqui percussion instruments.

Emmerich Gara (b.1901, d.1963). Born in Vienna, Austria in 1901, Gara established lifelong careers as a portrait photographer and professional cellist. Before the outbreak of the Second World War he and his wife emigrated to the United States, where he was hired as cellist for the NBC Orchestra led by Arturo Toscanini. He performed with the orchestra (later called The Symphony of the Air) until his death.

From his seat in the front row of the orchestra Gara was in the unique position to photograph all the great conductors and soloists who appeared with the orchestra during this extraordinary period of musical activity. His subjects were captured in performance, rehearsal, and in candid moments during recordings and while socializing.

Gara's action portraits were used for record covers, for the Book of the Month Club and in articles in Time, Life and other major magazines around the world. Fine .

Gravestock has the honour to present for the first time in Australia..Shura Cherkassky, The World's Greatest Boy Pianist who has created such a furore in the world of music by his extraordinary talents and phenomenal pianistic ability. Although only sixteen years of age he has a technique that leaves his audiences breathless from wonderment, and truly amazed before the manifestations of a power greater than they can comprehend". The program includes the works to be performed at the recitals on August 4th, 6th and 8th, a biographical essay and quotations from reviews of Cherkassky's recent Sydney recital and of his 1927 recital at Carnegie Hall.

The other illustrations show him as a child prodigy at the ages of eleven and thirteen, and with his teacher Josef Hofmann.

Alexander Isaakovich Cherkassky [1909-1995] was born in Odessa, Russia. His family left for America to escape the Russian Revolution. Cherkassky first studied with his mother, a pianist and piano teacher.
