An interesting collection of nine autograph letters, 1950 - 1974, Â from the important 20th-century Italian composer to the Romanian-French composer Marcel Mihalovici. Dallapiccola thanks Mihalovici for sending him the score to "PhÃ¨dre"; regrets that he was not able to hear the radio because of poor reception; hopes to see and hear him in Paris; brings up the composition of "Prisonnier" ("Un grand scandale est Ã prÃ©voir..."); informs him that theÂ O.R.T.F will not record[?] "Ulysse"; invites him to Florence; sends a small workÂ ("Sicut umbra..." qui - peut-Ãªtre - est un petit peu mon portrait"); reports on his busy life, etc. Also included is a TLS from Laure Dallapiccola dated April 12, 1968, concerning a missed rendez-vous when the composer was obliged to leave for a performance of "Ulysse" in Berlin. Various sizes and formats, most also with original transmissal envelopes (generally signed additionally).Â With Petrassi, Dallapiccola was the most significant Italian composer of his generation, wrote marvelous, lyrical 12-tone compositions full of impressionistic textures, two major operas (Il Prigoniero, Ulisse), and was teacher of Berio and Rands among other leading composers.
