Used; Like New/Used; Like New. ALS, one page, 6 x 8, March 3, 1940. Letter to Louis Persinger. In part: "It would have interested me very much to hear Mr. Ricci's concert, particularly after your warm and heartfelt words about his playing but unfortunately I was not free on the evening of the concert. Perhaps I will have another chance to hear him." In fine condition. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope. Originates from the collection of American violinist and pianist Louis Persinger (1887â1966), who trained at the Leipzig Conservatory and later taught at Juilliard, mentoring the likes of Yehudi Menuhin, Ruggiero Ricci, and Isaac Stern. At this time the 22-year-old Ruggiero Ricci was under Persinger's tutelage, and was coming into his own after having been regarded as a child prodigy; he went on to become a very prolific and successful violinist, considered the 20th century's greatest performer of Paganini's works. A wonderful letter associating these three important figures of classical music.
