Autograph letter signed in full to Hugo Balzer
- "Along with his teacher Arnold Schoenberg and fellow pupil Anton Webern in the years before and immediately after World War I, [Berg] moved away from tonality to write free atonal and then 12-note music. At once a modernist and a Romantic, a formalist and a sensualist, he produced one of the richest bodies of music in the 20th century, and in opera, especially, he had few equals." Douglas Jarman in Grove onlineWritten during the period when Berg was actively engaged in the composition of Lulu, which extended from mid-1928 to the spring of 1934, at which point the opera was complete in short score.Balzer, founder of the Robert-Schumann-Konservatoriums, was music director in Düsseldorf, Detmold and Darmstadt variously in the 1930s and 1940s. 2 pp. Octavo. Dated June 10, 1931. With Berg's handstamp in blue-black ink to upper left corner: "Alban Berg / Gut Berghof / post: Sattendorf / am Ossiacher-See / Kärnten, Austria / Tel. Villach [1]395"). Together with autograph envelope addressed to Balzer at the Stadttheater in Freiburg with Berg's handstamp to verso with his address on Trauttmausdorffgasse 27 in Vienna. In German (with translation). Berg thanks Balzer for his recent letter, and tells him that he has also written to [Finance Minister] Weinberger. "Your kind letter reached me in a roundabout way. You probably have my letter of June 5th by now. In the same mail I wrote to Fin[ance] Min[ister] Weinberger. Hopefully success! . Please keep me in the loop."Letter creased at central fold and very slightly at margins; envelope slit at upper margin, upper right corner lacking where stamp has been removed, Berg's name in another hand to address panel.
