Autograph musical quotation signed in full
Sauret, a French violinist and composer, is best known for his studies for unaccompanied violin, but the third entrance of the theme lies below the range of the instrument. "Little is known about his training as a violinist... [He] was one of the most characteristic representatives of the Franco-Belgian school of violin playing. He possessed a transcendental technique, a rich and individual tone and a very expressive vibrato... As a composer, he was influenced by the German theorist Jadassohn, whom he had known in Leipzig. Most of his works, naturally, were for his own instrument." Roger J.V. Cotte in Grove Music Online.. Oblong octavo (265 x 170 mm). 10 measures, being the beginning of an unidentified three-part fugue. Notated in purple ink on one staff. Marked "Moderato" and in A-flat major, 2/4 time. The quotation breaks off after the third entrance of the theme. Inscribed to an unidentified correspondent: "Souvenir affectueux de l'ami Émile Sauret," and dated "Londres le 12 Décembre 1902." Slightly foxed and stained at edges.
