Scope and content

Ysaye has been requested to ask Brodsky and his quartet to accept an engagement in Brussels this winter. There will be 6 concerts devoted to classical chamber works and Joachim and his partners are engaged for the Beethoven session. The Brahms session could be done by Brodsky and partners who could be joined by the clarinettist Muhlfeld, an ideal interpreter of Brahms. Before suggesting dates, Ysaye is checking that the project is agreeable to Brodsky and he would like a speedy reply or even a telegram at the address Ysaye-Bernimont. If the project is not possible, Ysaye will try to find another combination for Brodsky alone. Ysaye is pig-rearing, looking after the cows and writing music. Dated 26 Jul 1901.
