Scope and content

Grieg thanks Brodsky for his letter. A massage cure is detaining Grieg in Kobenhagen. Grieg would like to meet the Brodskys and spend a few days in their company which would be better for him than the good air of Wiesbaden. He is also undergoing dental treatment but hopes to be well enough to travel home at the beginning of May. Grieg has just sent off 2 orchestral scores in manuscript to Peters in Leipzig: orchestral variations and a lyric suite. Grieg hopes that Brodsky will conduct them when possible. He concludes with the tragic truth that illness and productivity are deadly enemies. Dated 19 Apr 1905.
