More About this Item


Description: Enrico Caruso Signs a Check Payable to Music Publisher G. Schirmer********** CARUSO, ENRICO. (1873-1921). Italian tenor; perhaps the most famous operatic singer in history. Signed Check. (“Enrico Caruso”). 1p. Oblong 12mo. New York, February 17, 1920. A check filled in with a typewriter for $9.33 and made out to the music publisher G. Schirmer, Inc. and bearing Caruso’s jaunty signature. ********** From his first performance at New York’s Metropolitan Opera in 1903, Caruso was a sensation and became the stage’s favorite attraction. Thanks in part to his phonograph recordings, some of the first made by any singer, Caruso is remembered as one of the most talented tenors ever. “His phenomenal tone production, the smoothness of his registers, the nobility of his acting and singing style are even today to be marveled at on his more than two hundred records,” (A Concise Biographical Dictionary of Singers, Kutsch & Riemens). Caruso collapsed in the middle of a performance of Elixir D’Amour in December 1920 and retired from the stage shortly thereafter. ********** G. Schirmer Inc. is an American music publisher founded in New York City in 1861. ********** Folded with a perforated cancellation which does not affect the signature. Normal wear and in very fine condition. Uncommon.
