Autograph letter signed "A. Gretchaninoff" to the Colombian musicologist Otto de Greiff. Aleksandr Tikhonovich GRECHANINOV.

Autograph letter signed "A. Gretchaninoff" to the Colombian musicologist Otto de Greiff.

1 page. Small folio. Dated New York, December 27, 1940. In French (with translation). With autograph envelope with Gretchaninoff's signature.

Written in response to de Greiff's request for an autograph, saying "There is certainly a conservatory of music in Bogota, and here is my request: give the catalogue of works included with this letter (not present) to the conservatory library."

Very slightly foxed; creased at folds.

A pupil of Rimsky-Korsakov, Gretchanioff wrote in a number of genres; his earlier music reflects the Romantic tradition while his later music was influenced by many of the same trends that inspired Stravinsky and Prokofiev. Item #20639
