Scope and content

Grieg enthuses over the Brodskys' visit which was medicine for body and soul. The photographs have arrived from Brodsky and brought the visit to mind. Grieg believes that he ought to have been sending photographs to Brodsky but will try to complete the string quartet for him. They were delighted to meet Halvorsen, a fine musician and human being but unfortunately he does not appreciate Schumann. Grieg regrets that Brodsky has not seen Halvorsen conduct and that he came to Kristiania one day too late to see and hear Peer Gynt. Grieg sends the song "Mit einer Wasserlilie" which Anna wanted to get to know. Grieg has to send the whole volume as he does not have it singly. In a P.S. Grieg adds that Nina has said that the song is not "Wasserlilie" but "Hoffnung"which is no. 26 in the same volume. Dated 20 Aug 1906.
