Honegger, Arthur (1892-1955)

Autograph Musical Quotation Signed

"AHonegger". 3 " h x 5" w, on a white card. Small piece of clear mat tape on the word "Allegro", barely perceptible; otherwise in excellent condition.
The Swiss composer has very neatly penned four bars from his Symphony No. 4 and dated it 1947, the year of the work's premiere.
Honegger's Fourth Symphony, subtitled Deliciae Basiliense, was written in 1946 on a commission from Paul Sacher, the Swiss conductor, patron, and impresario who founded and conducted the Basler Kammerorchester (1926–1987) which gave the first performance in January of 1947. Sacher commissioned notable works of composers and had a remarkable collection of manuscripts.
