Richter, Hans (1843-1916)

Autograph Musical Quotation Signed

"Hans Richter". 1904. 3" h x 6.75" w. In excellent condition.
The great Wagnerian conductor, who was chosen to conduct the premieres of Siegfried, Götterdämmerung, and the first complete performance of Das Ring at Bayreuth, pens a four-bar quote (half notes and rests on treble clef), signing and writing beside it: To the fine and nice page "Lohengrin". In the opera, there are four pages, all sung by sopranos and altos.
Hans Richter was among the most important conductors of his time, leading premieres not only of Wagner's music, but also of works by Brahms, Bruckner, Tchaikovsky, Dvorak, and Elgar. The year of this quotation saw him take the helm of the newly formed London Symphony Orchestra, a post in which he would remain for seven years.
