#876 - Giuseppe Verdi Autograph Musical Quotation Signed Estimate: $10,000+

Lengthy musical quotation from Luisa Miller, the start of Verdi's 'middle period'

Sought-after AMQS signed "G. Verdi," one page, 10.5 x 7.5, Naples, December 10, 1849. Verdi pens several bars of music and lyrics from his three-act opera Luisa Miller, nicely signed and dated at the conclusion two days after its premiere at the Teatro San Carlo in Naples, Italy. In very good to fine condition, with light creasing, and toning from prior display.

Based on the play Kabale und Liebe [Intrigue and Love] by the revered German dramatist Friedrich von Schiller, Verdi composed Luisa Miller after returning to his hometown of Busseto in the summer of 1849. With a libretto by Salvadore Cammarano, it premiered at the Teatro San Carlo on December 8, 1849, and it is considered to mark the beginning of the composer's 'middle period.'
