TIPPETT, Sir Michael 1905-1998. Autograph letter signed and dated June 15, 1956.
Tippett is, no doubt, referring to his Piano Sonata no.1, composed in 1936-8 and revised in 1942, in this letter.
"[Tippett's] importance lies not only in his revitalizing contribution to the genres of symphony, concerto, opera, string quartet and sonata, but also in his awareness - displayed in his writings as well as his compositional practice - of the complexities of the modern condition and the artist's role in relation to this." Grove online
1 page. Folio. To Otmar Reisel. Written from Tidebrook in Wadhurst, Sussex. In both English and German. With autograph envelope with Tippett's autograph signature and address to verso.
"The autograph you want will be at the bottom of this letter. There is only a sonata for Piano, which is rather difficult to play. That is, three movements are difficult and one is easy." The remainder of the letter is in German and informs his correspondent that the music is avialable from his German publisher, Schott, in Mainz.
Very slightly worn; creased at folds; envelope slightly worn and soiled.

GLOCK, WILLIAM. Notes in advance.
Oxford New York, Oxford University Press, 1991. With 26 photographs. Cloth. With dustjacket. Hardbound. 8vo. XI, 226 pp. The books includes glimps and in some cases fuller portraits of many of the musicians with whom Glock - as Controller of Music at the BBC (planner of the Proms) - had worked: Igor Stravinsky, Pierre Boulez, Roberto Gerhard, Hans Keller, Elliott Carter, Sir Malcolm Sargent, and many others. Sir William Frederick Glock (3 May 1908 - 28 June 2000) was a British music critic and musical administrator. Glock was born in London. He read history at the University of Cambridge and was an organ scholar at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge. Glock studied piano with Artur Schnabel in Berlin from 1930 to 1933. Glock was first music critic of the Daily Telegraph in 1934, and then of The Observer (1934-1945). He served in the Royal Air Force during World War II. In 1949 he founded the music journal The Score, and served as its editor until 1961. He later became music critic at the New Statesman, from 1958 to 1959. Glock became the first director of the Bryanston Summer School of Music in 1948. On the encouragement of Schnabel, he founded the Dartington International Summer School in 1953, and was its director until 1979. The summer school put on performances of works by contemporary composers and courses for musicians. Notable participants included the Amadeus Quartet, Nadia Boulanger, Paul Hindemith, Igor Stravinsky, Boris Blacher and Georges Enescu. He later served as Director of the Bath Festival from 1976 to 1984. Glock served as BBC Controller of Music from 1959 to 1972. From 1960 to 1973, Glock was also Controller of The Proms, and took over personal single leadership of The Proms whereas formerly a committee had been in charge of them. During his tenure, Glock arranged performances and commissions of works by many contemporary composers, such as Arnold, Boulez, Berio, Carter, Dallapiccola, Peter Maxwell Davies, Gerhard, Henze, Ligeti, Lutos?awski, Lutyens, Maw, Messiaen, Nono, Stockhausen, and Tippett. Davies dedicated three works to Glock: Symphony No. 1 (1976), Unbroken Circle (1984) and Mishkenot (1988). In Proms programmes Glock expanded as well the presence of music by past composers such as Purcell, Cavalli, Monteverdi, Byrd, Palestrina, Dufay, Dunstaple and Machaut, as well as less-often performed works of Bach and Haydn.
