Autograph postcard signed "Wilhelm Furtwängler," to Maria Proelss, December 27, 1931
St. Moritz - Written on one side of a plain postcard, addressed in another hand on the other side, approx. 4 X 6 in. A warm note from the great conductor, hoping for a meeting in Berlin, once he returns to Germany. Maria Proelss (1892-1962) was a pianist and painter, about whom Theodor Adorno said, upon her death, that "she played the piano most unconventionally: without all consideration, purely out of the need to realize the sense of the music . . . in stark contrast to the positivistic streamlined musicians who have made their way to the top in the last forty years." Two holes punched in left margin, where it was once preserved in a collector's binder, vertical crease, very good. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
