HOVHANESS ALAN: (1911-2000) American composer, his official catalogue comprising 67 numbered symphonies and 434 opus numbers. A.L.S., Alan Hovhaness, two pages, 4to, New York, 4th January 1936, to Mr Turok. Hovhaness apologises to his correspondent for 'My stupid and careless neglect of our appointment. The pressure of events has been too much for me and I hope you will forgive me. I regret the inconsideration afforded you deeply. So much of my time now is spent in New York City that I have been seldom at home. Also I must make several extended trips to other cities for performances of new works. This makes problems in appointments. If you fail to reach me by phone at Flushing, you might try a little studio in New York, Gramercy 3-3794… I am still way behind in fulfilling my promises both because of too much work and poor health.' Very minor creasing, two very small tears at the top and bottom edge not affecting text or signature, otherwise VG
