(Frédéric, 1784-1849, French Virtuoso Pianist and Composer of German origin) and François DIZI (1780-1840, French Harpist of Belgian origin)
Autograph Letter in Kalkbrenner's hand, signed by both, in French
with translation, to 'Monsieur', thanking him "for the thirty Ducats which you have had the goodness to send us. We leave Stuttgart imbued with the thought of His Majesty's kindness and we will never forget the wholly benevolent manner in which He has deigned to welcome us ... Your most humble and obedient servants", 1 side 10¼" x 8" and conjugate blank, Stuttgart, 10th November
From 1814 to 1823 Kalkbrenner was in London, then set out on a tour with Dizi. The pair were received with great acclaim in Berlin and Vienna. Kalkbrenner then settled in Paris, and became a member of the firm of Pleyel. Dizi too had been in London, and to him was due in no small part the popularity in England of the harp in the first quarter of the 19th century.
