Important Spanish composer (1876-1946) who takes a place among the most distinguished figures in twentieth-century music. ALS in French, one page on both sides of a 3.5 x 5.5 postcard showing the Alhambra in Granada, July 30, 1920. Letter to his publisher Henri Prunieres, founder of La revue musicale, in part (translated): "Precise dates for the concerts in England...relatively close together...will permit me to go to Brussels for the concert on November 12....Again one thousand thanks." Signed upside down on the front of the postcard. In fine condition. At this time de Falla was living in the Pension Alhambra in Granada, a city closely associated with him and his friend Federico Garcia Lorca. In May of 1921 he triumphed at London's Queens Hall playing the piano part of his 'Nights in the Gardens of Spain.' A wonderful association piece.
