Schippers, Thomas
THOMAS SCHIPPERS. A lengthy and informative autograph letter signed June 1952. To his Russian-born mentor and conductor Nikolai Malko, who himself was taught by Rimsky-Korsakov, Glazunov and Liadov and who premiered Shostakovich's 1st and 2nd Symphonies; the latter was dedicated to Malko. Here Schippers, whose meteoric, though short career, began this year, gratefully addresses his teacher. In part, "…when I reflect on my stay in Chicago the only pleasantry was working with you…" "There's been a lot of excitement in New York; when I got back N.B.C. asked me to conduct two programs in October…so you see, you not only helped…but you brought me good luck at the same time." "…I don't know yet whether I can come back to Chicago before the Stadium concerts but I am going to try. With my two concerts at N.B.C. and Boheme at the opera---needless to say- I shall try." "…The many things we discussed are beginning to penetrate and I know they will be a great help in the future." In a postscript: "Sam Barber [American composer Samuel Barber] is in Europe. His address in Paris is Hotel Lincoln Rue Bayard." 2 pages, 4to. [ref:6150]
