73/2179 [Music]. Diepenbrock, Alphons (1862-1921). Lot of 9 AUTOGRAPH LETTERS (on 12 lvs.) SIGNED "Alphons Diepenbrock"/ "A. Diepenbrock" and 21 AUTOGRAPH POSTCARDS/ CARDS (on 26 lvs.) SIGNED "A. Diepenbrock", addressed to "De Heer Alsbach", dated between "20 Maart 1917" - "9 V 1919" [postmark], pen and ink.

- All letters and postcards marked with (an) oblique pencil stroke(s) (occas. in blue crayon) as answered; including one incomplete letter.

= Apart from various printing matters (proof corrections to be sent or returned, other corrections etc.), these letters show the turbulent nature of Diepenbrock's relationship with his publisher and also contain some interesting asides: "Het doet mij genoegen dat u het duitsche lied tegen de door mij voorwaarde in uw fonds opneemt. Het zal waarschijnlij wel het laatste duitsche lied zijn dat ik zal uitgeven. De oorlog heeft mij de lust duitsche teksten te componeeren wel enigszins ontnomen." (from letter dated ("1 Juli 1917"); a deeply frustrated letter about the incompetence of the lithographer's firm "Gebr. Braakensiek": "Ik verbaas mij opnieuw over de slordigheid en domheid van Braakensiek aangenomen dat hier geen kwade wil bij in 't spel is, omdat hij 't gemakkelijker vindt al te drukken in plaats van behoorlijk revisie te zenden en brieven te beantwoorden" (letter dated "17 Sept. 1917"); in the letter dated "25 Sept. 1917" Diepenbrock complains about the repulsiveness of the proof of "Liebesklage" printed by the German firm Röder and rebukes Alsbach for choosing a German printer in these times and then only for economic reasons: "(...) voorbeeld van duitschen wansmaak in kleur en lettertype en een muziekdruk voorzien met de indicatie: "Stich und Druck von C.G. Röder Leipzig: dat alles in den tijd van den wereldoorlog door de Duitschers met roof en heerszucht ontketend, en daarbij nog de wetenschap dat de platen van mijn muziek binnenkort tot kogels of kanonnenmateriaal versmolten zullen worden - zoodat ik indirect nog tot vermeerding van het oorlogsmateriaal heb bijdragen [sic]! U zult dat misschien van uw handels en koopmansstandpunt "overdreven" of belachelijk vinden. Maar een ieder heeft zynen eigen wyze van voelen en dat is nu eenmaal mijne opvatting. (...) Op deze wyze en door deze onnationale houding der uitgevers wordt de nationale industrie in den grond geboord."; in the letter of "5 Mei 1918" Diepenbrock furiously rejects the terms of the contract that Alsbach has offered to him for his two (unidentified) songs (possibly his Due canzone per canto e pianoforte): "Geachte heer Alsbach, Het spijt mij dat ik het zeggen moet, maar Uw contract overtreft in schaamteloosheid en barbaarschheid alles wat mij op het gebied van uitgeversuitzuiging tot dusver bekend was. (...) Welke kunstenaar die zich zelf en zijn kunst ook maar een greintje respecteert kan zooiets onder teekenen? Had u mij dit contract bij onze bespreking een jaar geleden getoond, ik zou de liederen nooit hebben prijsgegeven. (...)."; in the letter of "11 Mei 1918", Diepenbrock continues his attack on Alsbach's contract (apparenly Alsbach had answered that he was unpleasantly surprised by Diepenbrock's letter), and writes that by signing the contract that he had received he would not only have forfeited all rights pertaining to his artworks but also his entire personality. He goes on to more or less threaten Alsbach by informing him that he will show the contract to a legal journalist and ask him to publish his opinion on the matter in one of the journals that he is attached to; by the time of his last letter, dated "17 Maart 1919" the tension has apparently abated and Diepenbrock enquires after his publisher's plans to publish a new edition of his Stabat Mater dolorosa.

The (post)cards deal i.a. with the following subjects: Diepenbrock's decision to cancel his membership of the Genootschap van Nederlandsche Componisten ("20 Maart 1917"); on the not yet received approval of André Gide of Diepenbrock's use of his poem for the song Incantation and offering a song for publication to Alsbach with which Mrs Durigo had been successful in previous years ("3 Juni 1917"); on the lack of a response by Alsbach to the song that he offered to him earlier and secondly asking Alsbach why he hasn't printed his Incantation yet ("22 Juni 1917"); on his frustration that neither he nor Alsbach knows the proper address of André Gide in order to ask him for permission to use his (adapted) text for Incantation and finally also on the typography of the title. Also suggesting that they send Gide a proof of the publication so that he can form his own opinion about the project, or let him be informed by more knowledgeable people ("indien hij niet de minste kennis van [muziek?] bezit, hetgeen altijd bij een letterkundige waarschijnlijk is"); also suggesting the title "Liebesklage" for his song on the words of Karoline von Günderrode ("6 Juli 1917"); on the typography of Liebesklage ("31 Oct. 1917"); on the unavailability of his songs in the shop of Alsbach and asking him if he can put an end to these recurring obstructions by his employees ("Ik weet dat Noske schriel en korzelig[?] is") ("19 Dec. 1919"); and finally on his decision to cancel his relationship with the "Auteursrechtbureau" because of the almost humiliatingly low financial gains from author's copyrights and venting his contempt for Mr Noske's sourness about his severing his ties with the copyrigh organisation ("laat hy dan bedenken dat hij mij na 1905 absoluut aan mijn lot heeft overgelaten (...)" ("30 Jan. 1918"). SEE ILLUSTRATION PLATE LXVI.

73/2181 [Music]. Dorn, Heinrich (1804-1892). AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED "H. Dorn", to "Lieber Wagner", not dated, pen and ink, 1 fold. leaf, 3p.

= Heinrich Dorn, German conductor. Dorn introduced Wagner and the conductor Holtei to each other in Riga, where Holtei was Kapellmeister. Wagner, Holtei and Dorn had a somewhat complex relationship, which finds its origin in the competition between Wagner and Dorn for the position of Kapellmeister in Riga on the departure of Holtei and the suspected duplicity of Holtei in this matter. From the various legible sections in this (unfortunately undated) letter, it appears that Dorn writes to Wagner on the problems that arose and the role that Holtei had in this matter.

I.a. "Lieber Wagner, eben geht Holtei von mir fertig es ist Abends Acht Uhr, ich kann kein Buntpapier mehr bekommen - entschüldige also wenn ich dich mit etwas grobem überrasche[...]; (...) Neumann bringt mir morgen früh die Orchesterstimmen; er soll mein Bothe sein und ich habe den Tag aber das Vergnügnen die Längen zu kurtzen. So hoffe ich gansterftigt[?] zu sein, wenn ich überhaupt genise [?] (...) Holtei hat mich aufgefordert[?] für dich zu [...?]. Ich habe ihm erklärt daß ich bereit bin [...] des Abends zu dirigiren wenn Sie keine Proben erlangt; das sind 14 Tagen (...)". With a visiting card of H. Dorn attached to the letter stating in pen and ink: "mit besten Dank für die Erinnerung an Tempi passati! 25.3.86"

In this letter, which is unfortunately difficult to read, Dreyschock writes about his regret that, despite the turbulent recent times, they (he and Schott) did not have as much to complain about as others (with regard to the revolutions of 1848 in Europe). "Sehen Sie lieber freund! Wie die Polititk versteckend ist, statt [...]. (....)". Also mentioning eight of his pieces with their prices, i.a.

Sept. 80"/ "23. febr. 94", pen and ink, fold. leaf (letter), letter recto and verso, (4)p., postcard recto only.

= "Herr Astor" was the head of the publishing firm Rieter-Biedermann. Theodor Kirchner, German composer, friend of Brahms and Clara and Robert Schumann, was highly regarded by most of the main 19th cent. composers, but never fulfilled the expectations of those around him. Hard to read, but in the letter Kirchner mentions i.a. the corrections for Opus 83, the proper title for a collection of pieces " (...) als "Bunte Blätter" dürfen sie die Stücke auch nicht [...?] (...). Ich würde sie einfach nennen: 12 Clavierst. Uebertragungen[?] aus Op.83". On the postcard he asks if Astor has received a parcel that he sent through Klamm. And follows with: "Wir bleiben noch 8 Tage hier: ich hoffe, [dass?] nun das Wetter bald so schlecht wird, dass wir fort müssen".
