Description

    Gustav Mahler Letter Signed "Mahler." One page, 8.75" x 8.25", Vienna, Austria, February 18, 1904. Mahler was a Bohemian-Austrian composer and conductor. Many consider Mahler to be one of the best post-romantic composers of all time. He once commented that, "a symphony should be like the world: it must embrace everything." He completed nine large symphonies, leaving his tenth unfinished; many of these symphonies are used in the core of great works played all over the world. The letter presented here is in very fine German hand, with very ornate lettering. A beautiful letter signed by one of the greatest composers of last century.

    The letter is in very fine condition; usual folds are present; some slight soiling along fold lines. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
