Lithograph. 275 x 202mm. 10¾ x 8". Cut.
Louis Spohr (1784-1859) was a German composer, violinist and conductor. His influence was key in the development of German music drama with his greatest triumph in the oratorio. He is now considered a 'forgotten master' having once having been as famous as Beethoven. In this later 19th century he was still popular enough for Gilbert and Sullivan to mention him in the same breath as Bach and Beethoven. The manuscript facsimile is the beginning of Spohr's String Sextet in C Major, op.140, composed in 1848 in the Romantic style.
