CASALS, PABLO
PABLO CASALS A typed letter, on decorative Festival de Prades stationery signed Prades, June 23, 1955, by the pre-eminent 20th Century Spanish-Catalonian cellist. In French, "Thank you for your letter. I beg you to tell Mr. Bowler that I don't believe it the right time to sign his letter, although I approve its content. The moment hasn't arrived for that and be certain of spreading confusion." 1 page. All his life, Casals maintained a stance on anti-Franco, pro-Republican Spain; he went into voluntary exile for this belief. It is possible that the letter mentioned was some kind of manifesto. Accompanying this letter, is an excellent, original 10 x 8 photograph showing Casals playing in the public square in Prades; dated December 13, 1964 on the reverse. The two: [ref:6199]

CORTOT, ALFRED
ALFRED CORTOT An autograph letter signed, on personal stationery, Lausanne, November 24, 1949, by the French-Swiss pianist, who excelled in the interpretation of music of the Romantic Era. To a Mr. Van De Spek, "I thank you for your kind letter which I found today upon my return from Italy and England." "I think, like you-or at least I would like to-that the kindness I got to witness in Brussels from the musical world during the occupation…has not vanished entirely. But I was waiting to see a convincing sign of it before changing my mind about my decision, which you obviously understand." 2 pages, large 8vo. With original autograph addressed envelope. Controversially, Cortot supported the German occupation of France during the Second World War and the Vichy regime that ruled part of the country. Cortot played in Nazi-sponsored concerts in Germany itself. His reluctance to return to Belgium is understandable. [ref:6636]
