Scope and content

Grieg writes enthusiastically to Brodsky from London. He recalls the happy times which he and Nina spent at Kaiser Wilhelm Strasse and Brodsky's wonderful violin playing. Grieg has been playing with Neruda [Wilma Hallé] who has charmed him with her feminine feeling. They will play together in his concert at St. James Hall on 16 May. In the first part they will play his F major sonata and in the second part the Romance and Finale from the third sonata. Chappell has organised the concert and will take half the profits. Grieg has been absolutely astounded at his success with the Philharmonic Society. He was delighted with the string accompaniment in his piano concerto. The critics also reviewed it well. In a postscript Grieg requests that Brodsky shows Fritzsch the reviews. Dated 10 May 1888.
