Bust-length photograph of the noted Austrian composer and conductor in formal attire, cigarette in hand, signed, inscribed "Herrn Emil Mösslinger allerherzlichst," and dated September [19]65. Robert STOLZ.

Bust-length photograph of the noted Austrian composer and conductor in formal attire, cigarette in hand, signed, inscribed "Herrn Emil Mösslinger allerherzlichst," and dated September [19]65.

Ca. 148 x 105 mm.

Very slight smudging to one syllable of inscription and first letter of signature, not affecting legibility; minor annotations in pencil and slight remnants of adhesive to verso.

"Besides his stage and film works [Stolz] composed several hundred individual songs and dances, and received many honours including Academy Awards, honorary citizenship of Vienna (1970) and a statue in his native city (1972). Stolz's longevity and his extensive promotion of his own music on LPs have led to him being ranked among the leading names of classical Viennese operetta. However, his more ambitious scores are less effective than the lighter songs he wrote for films and song-and-dance musicals, where he was able to display his melodic touch and rhythmic invention to particular effect."
