Lengthy AMQS on an 11 x 6 off-white musically-lined sheet. Mascagni pens an incredible 14 bars of music and lyrics from his opera ‘Cavalleria Rusticana,’ writing the title at the top, and signing along the bottom, “P. Mascagni, Morino, 8 Octobre ’90”; and a 3.5 x 5 matte-finish photo of a young Mascagni, nicely signed in black ink, “P. Mascagni.” Both are cloth-matted and framed together to an overall size of 26.5 x 15.5. In fine condition, with a light central vertical fold to quote passing through a single letter of signature, and slightly trimmed edges to photo. Considered one of the classic verismo operas, ‘Cavalleria Rusticana’ premiered only six months before the composer penned this superb quote. Oversized. RR Auction COA.
