PABLO DE SARASATE - VIOLINIST

Autographed and inscribed Charles Reutlinger of Paris carte de visite photograph, Lyon, March 27, 1876.

The then 32 year old Sarasate (1844 - 1908) inscribes a carte photograph a week and a half after his 32nd birthday.  Later in 1876 the violinist would go on to make his German debut which initially did not go well.  The critics viciously compared him to Joachim and not in a good light which nearly ended the tour. (They were friendly colleagues.) A concert at the Leipzig Gewandhaus brought down the house with endless ovations and his success for the rest of the tour was certain.  Two years later he would first publish his latest and most popular work, “Zigeunerweisen” in Germany.

Scarce this early!
