The Hollies: Early Autographs on Polydor Postcard – col8442

The Hollies: Early Autographs on Polydor Postcard – col8442

The Hollies: Polydor Promotion Postcard for “ Another Night “.

Signed by : Tony Hicks ( guitar, vocals ) Bobby Elliot ( drums ) Allen Clarke ( guitar, vocals ) Bernie Calvert ( bass ).

By 1965 The Hollies were established as one of Britain’s pre-eminent singles bands, and they enjoyed huge chart success in many countries in the mid-Sixties, releasing a string of classic harmony-pop hits including “Bus Stop”, “I’m Alive”, “Stop, Stop Stop”, “Carrie Anne”, “On A Carousel” and “Look Through Any Window”. Drummer Bobby Elliot is also considered by many to be one of England’s best drummers; together with longtime bassist Bernie Calvert, the Hollies enjoyed a solid, almost jazz-oriented backbeat. Tony Hicks and Graham Nash shared the guitar spotlight, while frontman Allan Clarke sang in his distinctive nasal tenor.

The item comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Jules Massenet Autograph. Portrait postcard (Photo Boyer, Paris) with keys at upper left, signed Wien 24 May 1902.

The Autograph comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Jules Emile Frederic Massenet (1842 –1912) was a French composer best known for his operas. His compositions were very popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and he ranks as one of the greatest melodists of his era. Soon after his death, Massenet’s style went out of fashion, and many of his operas fell into almost total oblivion. Apart from Manon and Werther, his works were rarely performed. However, since the mid-1970s, many operas of his such as Thaïs and Esclarmonde have undergone periodic revivals.

Fritz Wunderlich Autograph on Photo CoA

Fritz Wunderlich autograph

 

Legendary tenor Fritz Wunderlich as Tamino. Photo by Fayer, hand-signed by Fritz Wunderlich with a quote of The Magic Flute: Ach wie herrlich. Herzlich Fritz Wunderlich.

The Autograph comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Size: 9 x 14 c. Good condition.

Friedrich “Fritz” Karl Otto Wunderlich (1930 – 1966) was a German lyric tenor, famed for his singing of the Mozart repertory and various lieder. He died in an accident when he was only 35.

Wunderlich achieved the highest distinction within the German repertory. Of special importance is a recording of Mozart’s The Magic Flute, conducted by Karl Böhm, in which Wunderlich gave a critically acclaimed performance as Prince Tamino, opposite baritone Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau in the role of Papageno. There is also a live performance of The Magic Flute recorded in 1960 at the Salzburg festival, and several recordings as Belmonte in Die Entführung aus dem Serail. Recordings also exist of lesser-known Mozart operas such as Zaide and La Finta Giardiniera.

Wunderlich’s crystal-clear voice, exquisite diction, and intelligent, restrained interpretation also led him to impressive renditions of the lieder cycles of Schubert and Schumann with pianist Hubert Giesen. His famous recording of Schumann’s Dichterliebe remains a gold standard of this genre. Many tenors since have emulated Wunderlich’s interpretation of this cycle.

Desirable, early Wilhelm Furtwaengler Autograph

Desirable, early Wilhelm Furtwaengler Autograph: Hand-signed Photo. CoA

The Autograph comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

3,4 x 5,5 inches.  Very fine condition. No postcard, real photograph. Photo by Hans Dietrich & Co, Wien.

Wilhelm Furtwaengler (1886 -1954) was a German conductor and composer.

At his first concert, he led the Kaim Orchestra (now the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra) in Anton Bruckner’s Ninth Symphony. He subsequently held posts at Munich, Luebeck, Mannheim, Frankfurt, and Vienna, before securing a job at the Berlin Staatskapelle in 1920, and in 1922 at the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra where he succeeded Arthur Nikisch. Later he became music director of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, the Salzburg Festival and the Bayreuth Festival, which was regarded as the greatest post a conductor could hold in Germany at the time.

Towards the end of the war, under extreme pressure from the Nazi Party, Furtwaengler fled to Switzerland. It was during this troubled period that he composed what is largely considered his most significant work, the Symphony No. 2 in E minor.

The Autograph comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Boris Christoff (Bulgarian: Борис Христов (1914 -1993) was a Bulgarian opera singer, one of the greatest basses of the 20th century.

After several guest appearances and recitals in Austria in 1944 and 1945, Christoff returned to Italy in December 1945. He emerged as a worthy heir to the grand tradition of Slavonic basses as exemplified by Fyodor Stravinsky, Lev Sibiriakov, Vladimir Kastorsky, Feodor Chaliapin, Alexander Kipnis and Mark Reizen, among others. He sang mostly in Verdi and the Russian repertoire, although he also proved to be a refined performer of vocal chamber music.
