Shostakovich, Dmitri (1906 – 1975)

A fine autograph musical quotation signed by Shostakovich in blue ballpoint pen, ‘D. Shostakovich, 26 XI 1963, London’. The composer has written out seventeen bars of music from his 1934 four-act opera Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk on a 8.75″ x 5.25″ portion of lined music paper. A light central crease, otherwise in very fine condition. Scarce in this format.
