HAPPY TO CONSIDER SENSIBLE OFFERS. Brief overview: Signed letters, many autographed manuscript fragments, autographed photographs, calling card, souvenirs, programmes, French newspaper articles, a book by her nephew Marcel Chaminade, and some memorabilia connected to her husbands publishing house and music shop’Carbonel’, and finally her endorsed fragrance line with Morny Cosmetics. Interestingly, her brother-in-law was the eminent pianist Moszkowski. I will consider however, upon request, splitting into smaller lots. This collection covers a broad period of Chaminade’s life, with letters from her childhood home Le Vesinet, and later in life at Tamaris. Chaminade was a remarkable woman, who toured the USA, worked relentlessly in a war hospital, awarded the Legion d’Honneur (the first woman to receive), met Queen Victoria who became a huge fan (Chaminade’s Prelude for organ was played at Queen Victoria’s funeral). Wrote over 200 piano works, 150 songs, a concerto, two piano trios, a ballet, an opera, a mass, and sacred music. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own an important part of the 19th century French music scene. One of the big highlights of this collection is a letter to Chabrier signed by multiple musicians of the time, including Widor, Charpentier, Pierne, plus others.
