Adolph Brodsky
26th November 1886

Tchaikovsky has proposed that Brodsky should play in one of the Music Society Concerts. However the other directors of the society decided that it would be awkward since Brodsky has taken part in the Philharmonic Society. It is suggested that Brodsky take part in the 87-88 season. Tchaikovsky has now received Brodsky's letter and has approached Erdmannsdorfer in the presence of Jurgenson to suggest that they take advantage of Brodsky's presence in Petersburg. There are already too many violinists and the programmes are all made up. Tchaikovsky did not insist and feels very sensitive about the whole issue. He is also rather weary of the directorship of the Musical Society. He will meet Brodsky in Petersburg on the 27th. He is now engulfed in rehearsals for the opera which will be produced probably in the middle of December in the Russian calendar. Dated 26 Nov 1886.
