Item 797 - Franz Schubert Catalog 589 (Aug 2020)

(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $1,000.00
Sold Price: $7,667.50 (includes buyer's premium)


Extremely rare signed music score for 'Die Sterne von Leitner,' printed in Vienna in 1828, 13 x 9.75, 17 pages, signed in the lower right corner of the title page in ink by Franz Schubert with his paraph, adding the opus number, "Op. 96," below the printed title. Handsomely bound in half calf with marbled green boards, and the spine titled in gilt. In fine condition, with scattered light foxing and soiling.

Written in January 1828, the composition 'Die Sterne' was first performed as Schubert's private concert on March 26, where it was sung by his friend and most famous interpreter, Johann Michael Vogl. It is probable that no more than 100 copies of this earliest issue of the sheet music were printed; later issues were not initialed by Schubert, and the opus number was printed. From the collection of Stephen Adamson.
