Vintage concert program signed "Misha Elman"

4 pp. of a bifolium (ca. 220 x 155 mm.). Signed in pencil at upper portion. For a recital of the esteemed Russian-American violinist for the Daniel Concert Series at the Teatro Municipal in Lima, Peru on June 17, 1939. Featuring works of Handel, Beethoven, Lalo, Chopin, Dinicu-Heifitz, and Vieuxtemps, with Russian-American pianist Vladimir Padwa (1900-1981). Includes a printed biography of Elman (p. 2) and critics' reviews of his playing (p. 4).

Slightly worn, creased and browned.

"Elman's most glorious attribute was his rich, sensuous and infinitely expressive tone, which became legendary. His temperament was fiery and passionate, and there was a pulsating vitality in his playing. His improvisational style was best suited to the Romantic repertory, but with maturity his exuberance became tempered. His technique was reliable without being a dominant factor in his success. He composed a few short pieces, and made many arrangements." Boris Schwarz and Margaret Campbell in Grove Music Online.
