by PAER, Ferdinando (1771 - 1839)
1830. unbound. 3 pages (front and back) each measuring 8 x 5 inches, no place, no date, circa 1830, in Italian (partly translated), signed "Paer" to theater director Giambattista Benelli, who was a close friend of Rossini, stating that he has spoken to the police about Mme. Joy -- also that he has worked out an arrangement with the theater of M. Valabregue...who will pay for musical compositions, in which case he will then be more than glad to be at his service -- otherwise he will not set one foot in his establishment. Cleanly mounted to heavy stock paper with no loss of text. Near fine condition. Italian composer best known for Leonora (1804), an opera based on the same story as Beethoven's Fidelio, and Agnese, a drama in two acts. He holds the distinction of being one of the first teachers of Franz Liszt.
