Vincent d`Indy COMPOSER autograph, handwritten letter signed. Autograph letter signed, 1 1/2 pages, 8,25 x 10,75 inch, `Schola Cantorum – Ecole Superieure de Musique` stationery, Paris, 15.03.1923, in French, to Arturo Toscanini – d`Indy proposes to stage his work `Le Chant de la Cloche`, written and signed in dark ink “Vincent d`Indy”, with intersecting mailing folds and very mild browning – in fine to very fine condition. Rouché, Directeur de l`Opera, m`ayant parlé de vos superbes exécutions à la Scala, et surtout de l`excellence de vos Choeurs, auxquels vous savez sauffla la flamme indispensable a toute action mu-sicale chose bien rare dans d`autres theatres! , je prends la liberté de vous adresser une partition qui a été exécutée d`abord au Concert, puis mise a la scène, a la Monnaie de Bruxelles, par mes amis Guidé et Kufferath. Contrairement a ce que je pensais, cette piecè a eu du succès et a été joué pendant deux pleines saisons: Un grand part du succès revenait aux Choeurs, et, après certaines tableaux, les Choristes ont été rappelés et obligés du saluer, comme s`ils étaient des vulgaires chanteurs solistes! Ma partition ne peut etre montée dans un de nos thèatres parisiens, car, hélas! Les choeurs sont ici de qualite trop inferieuse… Mais, encouragé par M. Rouché, je vous demande de vouloir bien prendre connaissance de mon oeuvre: `Le Chant de la Cloche`, et si, par bonheur, elle vous plaisait, inutil de vous dire quelle serait ma joie de la voir dirigée et mise en scène par vous… “Translated:”Our friend, Mr. Rouché, director of l`Opéra, told me about your superb executions at La Scala, and overall the excellence of your choirs, with which you can give the needed power essential to the musical action very rare thing to see in other theaters! I take the liberty to send you a score which had been executed in Concert, then staged, at La Monnaiein Brussels, for my friends Guid and Kufferath. Contrary to what I thought, this play was successful and had been on stage for two seasons in full. Much of the success came from the Choirs, and after some scenes, the choristers were called and obliged to say hi, as they were some vulgar solo singers! My score can not be set in one of our parisian theaters, because, helas! The choirs are of a much inferior quality. But, encouraged by Mr. Rouché, I ask you to take a good look at my work: `Le Chant de la Cloche`, and if, by luck, it pleased you, useless to tell you, that it would be my joy to see it directed by you… `Le chant de la cloche` Op. 18, legend dramatique with prologue and seven scenes, text by d’Indy after Schiller, for solo voices, double chorus, and orchestra (1879-83), also adapted for stage.
