Item #26948 Autograph Musical Quotation Signed. Thomas B. SPIERING.

Autograph Musical Quotation Signed.

This American violinist and conductor led Chicago's Spiering Quartette, founded the Spiering Violin School and directed the Chicago Musical College; in 1911 he was appointed concertmaster of the New York Philharmonic Society under Gustav Mahler, whom he briefly replaced. AMuQS, heavy stock 3½" X 2½" card, Chicago, May 1900. Very good. Mild age toning; faint mounting trace at each corner. Spiering apparently was asked by an admirer for a snippet from an original composition, for at the center of this heavy card he has affixed a 3" X 1½" slip bearing two small, neatly penned measures from a composition identified as "Scherzo, Op. 2" above, with place and date penned just below. Below this slip, Spiering signs large and bold. Very unusual. Item #26948
