WILHELM KEMPFF & SÁNDOR VÉGH

Dual autographed original A. Genovese of Vernet les Bains 5” x 7” reverse blind stamped, matte, double-weight photograph of the pianist and violinist deep in conversation at the 1972 Prades Festival.

Both Kempff (1895-1991) and Végh (1912-1997) were regulars at the Prades Festival at Pablo Casals request and performed during the 1958, 1959, 1961, 1966 and 1972 seasons.  Both performed there as soloists and in chamber concerts.  We have dated the image based upon photographs of the pair in 1972 and the fact that it was the last time they performed together at the Festival.  A live recording with Casals of Beethoven’s “Geister” or “Ghost” Trio was made this year and has been released numerous times since the performance.

Scarce of the German pianist and the Hungarian-French violinist signed together.
