PIERRE MONTEUX  - CONDUCTOR

Autographed 9” x 8.25”, 20 page London Symphony Orchestra deluxe souvenir program, December 9, 1961.

Monteux, aged 86 agreed in 1961 to accept the position of Music Director of the London Symphony Orchestra with a demand for a 25 year contract and a clause for renewal at his option!

The program signed on the front cover below a photograph of Monteux in rehearsal is dedicated to his sister-in-law Hilda, Monteux who loved his sister-in-law signed every program for every concert she attended.  That said, this is the first one we have seen on the market.  Hilda and Meyer Davis’s papers are in the University of Maine Library.

The program contains Wagner’s Overture to Die Meistersinger, Bizet’s Carmen Suite 1, Ravel’s Pavane Pour une Infant Défunte and his Rapsodie Espagnole.  The concert finishes with Rimsky’s Scheherazade.
