Rabaud, Henri (1873-1949)

Autograph Musical Quotation Signed

"Henri Rabaud". c. 4.5" h x 6" w. One page. Overall very good; small crease at top and residual glue on verso.
Rabaud neatly pens the first four measures of "Il est des Musulmans," the opening aria of his opera Mârouf, savetier du Caire (1914). Although the libretto is in French, the composer here offers the quotation in German and misspells the word Muselmann.
Henri Rabaud was a French composer primarily of vocal music. Mârouf, savetier du Caire figures among his most popular works; it is noted for its incorporation of Wagnerian forms.
