1969 · Peekskill, NY
by COPLAND, Aaron (1900 - 1990)
Peekskill, NY, 1969. unbound. 1 page, 8 x 6 inches, Peekskill, NY, July 29, 1969. In this letter, Copland declines an offer to write an article and suggests someone else instead, in full: "I have given the matter of an article on Takemitsu some thought and am sorry to say that I don't think I can undertake to do it. I thought you ought to know this without delay so that you can make other plans. Perhaps Mr. Yuji Takahashi, the pianist with the Buffalo Creative Associates, knows Takemitsu's work intimately enough and might possibly be willing to undertake the article." Pinholes in the upper left corner, but still in very good condition. Set beside a 4.5 x 5.5-inch photo of Copland seated at a piano and marking some sheet music; triple-matted in gray, red, and beige and set in a black frame measuring 17 x 21.25 inches. American composer, conductor, and writer.
