Scope and content

Nina received Anna Brodsky's letter just as the Griegs were leaving Kopenhagen. Siloti has invited Edvard to Russia several times but the political conditions are too sad for Edvard to accept. As one ages, one is not so energetic and strong and one gradually loses strength to throw oneself into new and strange conditions. On the day after the next day the Griegs go off to Munich where Edvard will be conducting on 6th April; they must return immediately for concerts on the 12th and 14th. Edvard is practising his concerto with a young Norwegian, Halfdan Cleve, who will play in both concerts. In Kopenhagen, Edvard has been very well received with flowers and laurel wreaths; the orchestra played excellently. Nina's sister Tonny was with them in Kopenhagen and returned to Norway the day they also left Kopenhagen. Dated 30 Mar 1907.
