PUCCINI Giacomo (1858-1924)

L.A.S. "Giacomo Puccini", Viareggio 19 August 1923, to Carlo CLAUSETTI; 2 pages in-4 at his letterhead; in Italian.

To his friend, artistic director of the music publishing house Ricordi, about Turandot.
He asks him a favour: in September, in Lucca, there will be a brass band competition ("un concorso de bande"). He will have to award the prize of a gold medal, and he asks him to take care of choosing a medal of a certain value, worthy, artistic... Then Puccini will tell him the inscription to be engraved, what does he think about it? - He goes for a week by car to the Giro [the Tour of Italy], and for two days to Saint-Moritz; he hopes to find everything arranged on his return... Turandot is now going marvellously well, but also slowly ("Turandot va ottimamente ma anche lentamente")...
