Item #22365 Autograph letter signed. Ernest BLOCH.

Autograph letter signed

2 pp. on both sides of a card, 89 x 138 mm. To Mrs. Ehrman. Dated 6 November 1928.

"I am enjoying this wonderful 'Baumkuchen' three times: on its own merit and because it was carrying the welcome home of such a charming person. I will certainly be glad to let you initiate me to a game which seems so fascinating (provided you are not the one to be 'murdered'!) and I hope it can be soon. For the present, I have not yet unpacked my things, nor even myself!! With kindest regards to your husband and to yourself."

Written during the years of Bloch's directorship at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music (1925-1930).

Bloch was an American composer and teacher of Swiss origin. "In his best work, the expression of his firm faith in the spirituality of mankind always shows through. Bloch was, and continues to be, a singular figure in the music of the 20th century." David Z. Kushner in Grove Music Online.

Baumkuchen is a German cake traditionally made on a spit. The characteristic rings that appear in its slices resemble tree rings and give the cake its name.
