Autograph Letter Signed. Umberto GIORDANO.

Autograph Letter Signed.

Italian composer whose ten verismo style operas include "Andrea Chenier" (1896), "Fedora" (1898) and "Siberia" (1903). Item #25041

ALS "Giordano" in Italian (in bold purple pencil), 2pp (1st and 2nd leaves, ideal for display), 5¼" X 8¼", Baveno, Italy, 1914 July 17. Addressed to "Honored Maestro." Very good. On his "Villa Fedora" letterhead. Giordano's new four-act opera "Madame Sans Gene" was soon to be premiered around this time (he wrote to Maria Farneti on 22 July 1914 to ask her to sing in it), so although this letter is not translated its contents appear to concern music and scheduling matters, perhaps related to this premiere.
