Important Norwegian composer and pianist (1843-1907) whose works, often with a strong nationalistic flavor, include such repertory staples as the 'Piano Concerto in A minor,' the incidental music to Peer Gynt, and the 'Holberg Suite.' ALS in German, two pages on two adjoining sheets, 4.5 x 7.25, January 12, 1898. Addressed from Leipzig, a handwritten letter to William, in part (translated): "Writing you a few words in a hurry. Please get the photos to your colleague. The new one for the ‘little buffalo’. The second for Mrs. Grey (the nurse). The third to Mr. Tellett (if correctly sent) — the business partner of Mr. Vert. And finally the fourth…in fact, there are only three! I hope, with all your luck, you don’t forget your fellow men. No, you have absolutely no talent for that." In fine condition.
