Winter-Spring 2012 Catalog, Lot 9. [Ballets Russes] Goncharova, Natalia Sergeevna. (1881-1962).
Costume Design for a Sea-Monster from SADKO.
Gouache and watercolor over pencil on paper laid down on board. Inscribed in Russian (upper left and lower left) and with a collector's stamp (lower right). 16.5 x 10.4 inches (41.9 x 26.4 cm). Matted and framed to 37 x 54 cm.

This remarkable design was executed for Diaghilev's 1916 Ballets Russes production of Sadko, based on an episode from Rimsky-Korsakov's opera, where the Sea Princess becomes enamoured of the great musician Sadko and weds him in the kingdom of the Sea-King. The company had first presented Sadko in 1911 with choreography by Fokine and costumes by Anisfeld and Bakst. The present design dates from the restaging done for the American tour of 1916 with choreography by Adolph Bolm and new costumes and décor by Goncharova. $20000.00

Holiday 2012 Catalog, Lot 9. Bernstein, Leonard. (1918-1990).
Signed Photograph with Pope John Paul II, inscribed to Jack Gottlieb.
Exceptional vintage 8 x 10 inch color photograph of the composer/conductor shaking the hand of Pope John Paul II, inscribed and signed in white ink “For Jack with love, Lenny B. [hebrew'] 1983.” Photographer's tag on the verso (Foto Felici, Roma), very fine, an unusual and perhaps unique image with a remarkable association.

Jack Gottlieb (1930 - 2011) was an important composer, teacher and long time associate of Leonard Bernstein. Although he is primarily remembered as Leonard Bernstein’s ‘right hand man’ he was an important teacher and composer in his own right, particularly of music for the synagogue. Bernstein described Gottlieb as "one of the most important talents on the American musical scene.” $600.00

Winter 2011 Catalog, Lot 10. [Beatles] Lennon, John. (1940 - 1980) & Ono, Yoko. (b.1933) [Liebovitz, Annie. (b. 1949).
John Lennon & Yoko, New York, 1970 - Original Photograph.
Original 1970 photograph of Lennon and Ono together in NY. Stamped by the photographer on the verso and also by Rolling Stone magazine. 10 x 8 inches, small tear in lower blank margin, else fine.

In 1970, the 21-year-old Annie Leibovitz got an interview with the founding editor of Rolling Stone, a relatively new publication. Jann Wenner liked Leibovitz’s portfolio, and sent her on her first assignment, to take photographs of John Lennon in New York. In an interview about the session, Yoko Ono recalled that "she was like a student, very young and sweet and [we thought] this is interesting, [Wenner] didn't get some famous photographer...[Leibovitz] was more concerned about our spirit and that came through." The present photograph is from this historic session and does indeed capture some of the playful spirit of the famous couple. One of Leibovitz's images of Lennon alone from this series appeared as the cover of Rolling Stone in January of 1971 and was a crucial moment in the early career of this important photographer. Nine years later, on December 8, 1980 when Leibovitz took the iconic image of the naked Lennon curled around the clothed Yoko, she was the last person to professionally photograph Lennon, who was shot and killed five hours later. $4000.00

Spring-Summer 2010 Catalog, Lot 10. Beethoven, Ludwig Van. (1770-1827).
Tre Sonate per il Forte Piano con un Violino compose e dedicate al A. Salieri. Opera 12.
Bonn: N. Simrock, [1801]. Oblong quarto. Parts: 45 pp, 17 pp. Engraved throughout. [PN] 133. Scarce 2nd edition, after the first issue (Artaria) of 1799. Score nicely bound in marbled boards with leather title plate on front. Scattered foxing, a few small creases, overall fine. Kinsky-Halm p. 28; BSB 2, 470; not in CPM.

"The three violin sonatas of Opus 23 written in 1798...stem, as we should expect, from Beethoven's direct engagement with Mozart's late violin sonatas. They were dedicated to Salieri, with whom Beethoven was studying vocal composition and Italian text-setting methods, clearly with operatic ambitions in mind. Apart from the dedication of Opus 2 to Haydn, the sonatas represent the only case in which Beethoven dedicated a work with opus number to a teacher; there are no dedications to Neefe, Albrechtsberger, or Schenk. In view of Salieri's position as the Imperial Hofkapellmeister and his political role in Viennese musical life, the dedication had obvious career implications, though nothing came of it. Salieri, like Albrechtsberger, found Beethoven self-willed and difficult, and he was probably bewildered by the new features of these works." (Lewis Lockwood, p. 103). One of the sonatas was probably performed by Beethoven and Schuppanzigh on March 29, 1798. $800.00
