On an album leaf ca. 201 x 163 mm. Dated Lake Hopatcong [New Jersey], August 23, 1901. In black ink.
A two-measure arpeggio in C major notated in treble clef on one hand-drawn staff. In 6/8 time. Marked "Vivace... ff. con Amore" and inscribed "Composed and dedicated to Thomas Walsh by his friend Alex[?] Lambert..."
Lambert's "composition" seems to have been given in jest – perhaps as a playful exhortation for Mr. Walsh to practice arpeggios.
Slightly worn, soiled, and browned and soiled; annotations in pencil to blank margins.
Lambert, a noted Polish American pianist, pedagogue, and pupil of Liszt, was the director of the New York College of Music from 1887 to 1905. Item #25520
