Anna Brodsky, Adolph Brodsky
18th February 1893

Nina Grieg thanks Anna Brodsky for her last letter and for the photograph of her husband, Adolph Brodsky with the dedication which has delighted the Griegs. Nina was so upset to go to Paul Klengel's in Kaiser Wilhelm Strasse when the Brodskys were no longer there. Concertmeister Prill is in the Brodskys' flat. Frau Prill is a Russian but quite different from other Russian ladies Nina has known. At the beginning of the month the second Peer Gynt Suite was played under Grieg and never before has he been so well received in Germany. The Griegs spent a few days with Dr. Abraham in Berlin to hear Sinding's new symphony which Dr. Abraham will print. In a P.S. scrawled sideways over the first page of the letter, Nina asks if Anna has heard or read of Ethel Smyth's success with her Missa Solemnis in London. Dated 18 Feb 1893
