Lot 580: Grouping of four ALSs, each signed "Hans," totaling seven pages on four sheets, various sizes, dated between December 25, 1955, and November 28, 1959. All are addressed to Allain Ollivier. One letter, in part: "Off we went, and on the way to the city we started to talk, and when he heard my name he said he was a music critic and he'd written very badly about 'Boulevard Solitude.' I said no wonder, as all the Roman critics just copy what M. Renzo Rosselini [sic] said who himself is an idiot and a very bad composer. And I don't give a damn, only for him, my guest, I'm a little bit sorry." Another, in part: "My life is quite calm and happy, I get a big kick out of composing and, since two years, conducting. And I have a wonderful friend since 3 years who is also my pupil composing, very talented and very Mediterranean. I hope you will meet him." In overall fine condition, with expected mailing folds touching two of the signatures. RR Auction's Fine Autographs and Artifacts Auction 467 Wednesday, 13th January 2016 Estimate: $800-1200
