Scope and content

Nina apologises for not writing to Anna. Nina has been very moved at the love and respect which the whole world has for Edvard. She thinks it remarkable that the English people have so much respect for art and artists. The concert with Edvard's posthumous works was on 22 January and was a great success: the two quartet movements were best and after rapturous applause, the second movement was repeated. Hinrichsen has allowed Röntgen to repeat the programme in Kristiania, a Grieg memorial in March. How wonderful if the Brodsky Quartet could play the quartet pieces, but probably not this season. Nina does not have the courage to make the journey to England this winter. She also mentions that the Halvorsens and Hinrichsen came to the Grieg concert. Dated 7 Feb 1908.
