Fall-Winter 2007 Catalog, Lot 141. Strauss, Richard. (1864-1949).
Three typed letters signed ('Dr Richard Strauss').
Fascinating group of three letters from the important composer/conductor to Hugo Gruters, Director of the Bonn Gesangverein (and composition teacher of Adolf Busch!). Usual folds.
Arrangements for concerts in Bonn: in March 1907, Strauss cannot commit himself for the winter, because there is a possibility of a two-month trip to America; his rates are 1000 Marks for a concert, 1200 Marks if there is a public rehearsal. By June, however, he is able to discuss the programme in detail, suggesting that GrĂĽters himself conduct the Wandrers Sturmleid, because he is more familiar with the chorus, and also that because of the size of the orchestra it would be better to replace the Guntram overture with the Dance of Salome. In October Strauss confirms the details, repeating his suggestion about the conducting of the Sturmlied because of the difficulty of rehearsing the chorus: 'The orchestra is a more easily flexible material and easy to mould to one's individual wishes in one to two rehearsals'; he is delighted to hear that an orchestra of 100 is available for the Domestica and the Dance of Salome.
Sold.

Winter-Spring 2012 Catalog, Lot 163. [Music, Life & Death under the Third Reich] Strauss, Richard. (1864-1949) .
MĂĽnchen, ein Gelegenheitswalzer, AV or Op 125, TrV. 274. - Important Presentation Copy.
[1937]. 20pp, a facsimile photostat of the original unpublished score made for a Nazi propaganda film about Munich, which was, ironically, suppressed by the Nazis (and only available in this form). One of ten copies that Strauss had made, this one was given to Willi Schuh (1900 - 1986), his biographer. In ink, Strauss has written "Facsimile" on the bottom left of the first page and signed it "All Rechte vorbehalten, Richard Strauss." [All rights reserved, Richard Strauss.] In very fine condition.

In 1938 Strauss was asked to compose music for a documentary film on Munich, and though both music and film were completed the following year, the Nazi regime forbade the film´s release. The musical material for the film score had been drawn from "Feuersnot", a fitting idea since that opera had been set in Munich of old. Despite the ban, Strauss went ahead and self-published the music under the title "München: ein Gelegenheitswalzer "(1939) in a set of 10 manuscript facsimile copies, given to close friends. After his home city of Munich was bombed by the Allies in the war, the work was expanded with a new subtitle, "ein Gedächtniswalzer "["Memorial Waltz"] (1945). $5000.00

Winter 2011 Catalog, Lot 186. Strauss, Richard. (1864-1949).
Autograph Letter, " I am not a factory of musical notes that works with guaranteeed delivery."
2 pp. Marquartstein, Sept. 23 [no year]. A highly interesting letter from the influential composer and conductor, addressed to Norbert Salter. Usual folds, in fine condition. In full:

"Geehrter Herr Salter! Eine Garantie, daß ein neuer Chor mit Orchester rechtzeitig fertig sind, kann ich nicht übernehmen: ich bin keine Notenfabrik, die mit garantierter Lieferzeit arbeitet. Bei Fürstner u. Lenckart sind 5 große Männerchöre a capella von mir erschienen; wenn die Mannheimer “das Lied der Freundschaft”, “Brauttanz”, “Altdeutsches Schlachtlied” einstudieren wollen, will ich die 3 Stimmen gern dirigieren. Wenn den Herren aber in irgend einer Richtung mein Engagement nicht paßt, mögen Sie’s jeder Zeit rückgängig machen. Jedenfalls habe ich keine Lust zu weiteren Correspondenzen in dieser Angelegenheit. Dieses eine lumpige Conzert kostet mich mehr Briefe als ein ganzer amerikanischer Sturm. Dazu habe ich keine Zeit. Schluß u. besten Gruß, Ihr Rich. Strauss"

["Dear Mr. Salter, I cannot commit to a guarantee that a new chorus with orchestra will be ready in time: I am not a factory of musical notes that works with guaranteeed delivery. Five big men’s a capella choral works of mine are published by Fürstner u. Lenckart. If the Mannheimers want to rehearse the “Lied der Freundschaft”, “Brauttanz”, “Altdeutsches Schlachtlied” [the Song of Friendship, Bridal Dance, Old German Battle Song], I will be happy to conduct the three parts. But if the gentlemen don’t like my engagement in any way, you can back out of it. In any case, I don’t want to deal with any more correspondence on this issue. This one lousy concert has cost me more letters than an entire [American storm]. I don’t have time for this.
Done. Best wishes, Yours, Rich. Strauss"]

Norbert Salter (1868 - 1935) was a cellist who played under Mahler in both Budapest and Hamburg (1891 - 1897). After Mahler left Hamburg for Vienna, in a letter of 25 May 1898, Mahler described Salter - presumably a candidate for a position in Vienna Hofoper - as "an average cellist, who [unfortunately] would only play a mediocre role in our orchestra." The present letter seems to have be written some years later, with Salter in his new capacity as the business manager of the Hamburg orchestra. After giving up the life of a performing musician, Salter expanded his interests to become a successful international musical and theatrical agent, eventually becoming the European representative of the Metropolitan Opera Company.
