On behalf of a long-time customer and friend, I offer for sale this unique
manuscript by Andrés Segovia. Being not myself the seller, I
here act as an intermediary only, but do vouch for the
authenticity of this special find as well as for the seller's
SEGOVIA (Andrés), SCHUMANN (Robert). Estudio, transcrita en Cordoba el 26-X-913.
transcription of an Etude by Robert Schumann (83 measures in E, with
fingerings for both hands), written in ink on a strong music paper,
watermarked "A. S. S."; 6 pages, 31 x 21,5 cm.
On a separate double-sided sheet: "Reverie Schumann" (with fingerings), unsigned, but obviously from the same hand and period.
German guitar player and researcher Andreas Stevens was so kind as to
provide additional background informations on this manuscript : the
original title of the "Etude" is "Kleine Studie" (no.14 from Album für die Jugend, op.68), it was published by Romero & Fernandez under the title "Pequeno Estudio".
"Reverie" (originally "Träumerei" from Kinderszenen op.15) on the other hand appears to have never been published, but it is featured on Segovia's final recording.
