Remarkable compilation of mid-19th-century composers—Mercadante, Thalberg, and Pisani
Description  

Italian composer (1795–1870) best known as a predecessor to Giuseppe Verdi and for operas such as Il Giuramento and Orazi e Curiazi. Boldly penned autograph musical manuscript, two pages on two adjoining musically lined sheets, signed and dated at the conclusion, “27 May 1849, Saverio Mercadente.” Mercadente pens 32 bars in nine two-line systems for his Scherzo for piano in A major. On the interior of the adjoining sheets are three additional AMQSs, one signed by Sigismund Thalberg, one by Bartolomeo Pisani, and one signed in pencil by “Hermann.” In fine condition, with extremely subtle foxing. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
