DVORAK Antonin (1841-1904)

L.A.S. " Ant. Dvořák", Sychrow 31 August 1881, to Balduin DÖRFFEL; 1 page in-8; in German.

On his Stabat Mater and his opera Selma Sedlák.

[Balduin DÖRFFEL was an employee of the music publisher Simrock. Dvořák refers here to his Stabat Mater, to be published by Simrock, and his opera Selma Sedlák (The Rusty Peasant), premiered in Prague on January 27, 1878 and published by Simrock in 1882].

They will receive the Stabat tomorrow. He would like to know when the piano reduction of the opera will be completed. Probably in November, before the performance in Vienna. He received a letter from the kapellmeister Joseph Hellmesberger Jr. about the piano reduction, because it is much easier to rehearse the opera with the piano reduction. He doesn't know anything definite yet, but he thinks the first performance in Vienna will be in November...

"Das Stabat werden Sie schon Morgen [...] bekommen. ...] Können Sie mir nicht sagen bis wann der Clavierauszug der Oper fertig ist? Wohl im November vor den Aufführung in Wien. Ich bekam gestern einen Brief von Hellmesberger Kapellmeister bei Jauner wegen den Clavierauszug, da das Einstudiren der Oper mit Clavierauszug sehr erleichtert wird. Ich weiß noch Nichts Definitives aber glaube daß die erste Aufführung in Wien im November stattfindet " .
