Autograph musical quotation from the composer's noted jazz-inspired work, La Création du Monde, signed "Milhaud"

4 measures in treble clef notated in blue ink and identified in the composer's hand as being from his Création du Monde. Small quarto (89 x 113 mm.) On card stock, with rounded corners. Inscribed "To Mr S E Waits with my best wishes."

A distinguished French composer, Milhaud "was associated with the avant garde of the 1920s, whose abundant production reflects all musical genres. A pioneer in the use of percussion, polytonality, jazz and aleatory techniques, his music allies lyricism with often complex harmonies. Though his sources of inspiration were many and varied, his music has compelling stylistic unity." Jeremy Drake in Grove Music Online

La Création du Monde, a highly successful fusion of jazz and classical elements, was composed in 1923, a year before Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue.
