1 page. Small octavo. Dated "Saturday evening" [between 1886-1899]. On letterhead of the Société Nationale de Musique. In French (with translation).
Chausson would like his correspondent to come to his home to inform committee members of works to be performed at a forthcoming orchestral concert.
"Would you please take the trouble to come to my home next Monday at 2 o'clock to let the committee know which works you are presenting at the orchestral concert."
Creased at folds and slightly overall.
The "committee" of which Chausson speaks was likely composed of members of the Société Nationale de Musique. Becoming the Société's secretary, in 1886, allowed Chausson to become more closely involved in Parisian intellectual and musical circles, and as a result, to develop a more "elaborate and intensely dramatic style." The Société was founded in 1871 by Camille Saint-Saens, Cesar Franck, Alexis de Castillon, and Romain Bussine. Item #23295
