Four-page manuscript by the German prodigy

Autograph musical manuscript in pencil, four pages on two adjoining sheets, 9.75 x 13.25, signed in the upper right, “Furtwangler,” and dated 1897. Furtwangler pens a lengthy musical manuscript with numerous edits, additions, and corrections, labeling it at the top, “Allegro molto.” A vertical date notation in the right margin reads, “26 November 1897–27 December.” Light toning to top edge (slightly affecting the signature) and a bit of trivial paper loss to corner tips, otherwise fine condition. At the time he wrote this manuscript, Furtwangler was just eleven years old; his earliest known composition was written at age seven. He started lessons in music theory in 1897, the year of this piece, with the Munich composer and composition teacher Anton Beer-Walbrunn, continuing later with Joseph von Rheinberger and Max von Schillings. A superb example of some of Furtwangler’s earliest work. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
