Letter
Adolph Brodsky
1889

So there's a lot going on in this letter. Tchaikovsky is writing to Adolph Brodsky (Royal Manchester College of Music) for a number of things. It all sounds very complicated and musician-y.

Tchaikovsky begs to be excused for muddling the arrangements for the quartet's visit. It has been decided that one of their 4 pianists will play at each of the 4 sessions. If one was left out there would unpleasantness and quarrels. Tchaikovsky begs Brodsky to play at the 4 sessions and gives dates between the 31 October/ 19 November and 10/22 November so that the quartet would require to be in Moscow for only 2 weeks but Brodsky would have to be there for longer to attend a rehearsal of the concerto on 26th. Tchaikovsky then adds that Brodsky will have a whole week 12/24 - 19/30 November in Petersburg. Brodsky may like to write to Albrecht himself.
