Description: Alfred Hertz (1872-1942) German conductor. In 1898, Hertz met the British composer Frederick Delius, who was then living in Paris, and on 30 May 1899, at the age of 36, Hertz conducted the first concert of Delius's music, in St James's Hall in London. Hertz first came to prominence conducting Wagner at the Metropolitan Opera in New York. Some of the performances he conducted were experimentally recorded by the Met's librarian Lionel Mapleson on what are now known as the Mapleson Cylinders and later issued on LP. He first came to San Francisco as a conductor of the Metropolitan Opera during its 1906 tour and was present when the city was devastated by earthquake and fire. Mounted photograph signed and inscribed, New York 1909. Overall size 7-1/4 x 11-1/2 in. Very nice EXCEPT for a visible crack in the upper left corner.
