FRENCH OPERA SCOREShttps://www.lubranomusic.com/images/upload/french-opera-scores.pdf
We take pleasure in offering these 679 opera scores dating primarily from the 19th and early 20th centuries, including works of both better-known and more obscure composers. A number of works are offered in multiple editions and/or issues, reflecting revisions, additions, and deletions made by their composers and/or producers after the work’s first performance. As such, these subsequent printings provide valuable insight into the work’s compositional evolution, performance, and publication history.

Three Stravinsky works offered today - the final, signed by the composer. You have likely heard of the supposed riot that occurred at the opening of Stravinsky's "The Rite of Spring" in Paris in 1913, but did you know that the piece was later altered and included in Walt Disney's "Fantasia?" Have you heard that Stravinsky and W.H. Auden worked together at one point or that the composer used to have Saturday lunches with Aldous Huxley? The Rite of Spring + Brave New World = The Age of Anxiety perhaps?

1. Persephone: Ex libris the composer and pianist Ray Green (1908-1997), with his autograph signature to corner of upper wrapper in red pencil. Premiered in Paris at the Opéra on 30 April 1934 conducted by Stravinsky.

Autograph letter by Frédéric Chopin, possibly to the composer's pupil Friederike Müller. Dated "Paris 10 avril," in all likelihood 1845, the year that saw the publication of opp. 57 (the Berceuse for piano) and 58 (the Sonata for piano).

Chopin plans to leave Paris within three weeks, most probably for Nohant, George Sand's summer estate, and tells his correspondent that he will be back in September or October. He thanks the addressee for the "good memories" and sends compliments to her aunt:

"Je pars dans 10 ou 20 jours - Je reviens au mois de 7-embre ou 8-bre. Je vous remercie pour votre bon souvenir - et croyez-mois toujours dévoué Chopin Mille compliments à Mme votre tante."
