Lengthy manuscript of “Scene II: Fragments” from Boulanger’s ‘La Sirene’
Description  

Exceptional autograph musical manuscript, 10.5 x 13.75, seven pages on four musically lined sheets, nicely signed at the conclusion in fountain pen. A lengthy manuscript from her cantata ‘La Sirene,’ titled at the top, “Scene II: Fragments.” Boulanger pens many intricate bars of music and lyrics, making a few pencil notations and edits throughout. Also includes a much later personal calling card imprinted with her name, title, and address, 3.25 x 2.5, unsigned but with a brief handwritten note in French responding to an invitation. Scattered creases, light soiling, and edge toning to the musical manuscript, otherwise overall fine condition. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope for the calling card, addressed in her own hand. Boulanger’s ‘La Sirene’ earned second place at the Grand Prix de Rome in 1908, although many critics thought she should have won—the victor was Andre Gailharr of the Paris Opera, and it was suspected that her gender put her at a disadvantage. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
