His orchestra has become a philharmonic union but Halvorsen spent only one year there as he did not get on with the management. He returned to the National Theatre from which he will receive a pension. Halvorsen has been elected to the Royal Swedish Academy of Music. He mentions his compositions. Now almost 80 Nina Grieg is on a concert tour in Denmark. Halvorsen bemoans the demise of so many of their friends but rejoices that Brodsky is still alive and working. Dated 20 Dec 1924.
