Cat and the Mouse

Aaron Copland


COPLAND, Aaron. Scherzo Humoristique. “Le Chat et la Souris.” Paris: Durand, (1948). Quarto, original printed wrappers; pp. 5. $700.

Later edition, inscribed by Aaron Copland, “For Stuart Wright, my first published work (composed 1919). Aaron Copland (1977).”

With a letter laid in to the recipient from the publisher presenting the copy. For solo piano. Published first in Paris in 1921, while Copland was still a student of Nadia Boulanger, the piece is now generally known by its subtitle, The Cat and the Mouse.

A bit of dampstaining to wrappers. A very nice copy with a wonderful inscription.
