On the verso is very neatly penned quotation by the Russian composer and conductor Eduard Schütt (1856-1933), signed and dated at Vienna in 1897. Also in very good condition with just a little original smudging to the inscription.
Eduard Schütt owed his musical career in no small part to Anton Rubinstein, who persuaded the young composer's father to allow him to pursue a musical education. After several years spent concertizing and composing, Schütt accepted the conductorship of the Vienna Academic Wagner Society in 1881 and in 1887 declined an invitation from Cosima Wagner to become the music director of the Bayreuth Festival. Among his more notable works are two piano concertos, several piano trios and quartets, and a comic opera.
