Scope and content

Nina writes to Anna that she has just heard in the "Palmgarten" [Palm court] of the hotel Tchaikovsky's Capriccio Italien which she did not know: she would like to know everything the great noble Russian wrote. Nina does have anxieties and feels that the sword of Damacles is hanging over their heads but then she has more peaceful thoughts and sees the Brodskys sitting in the dining room with Dickens and the dear pipe: Nina then thanks God for the Brodskys and for everything beautiful, fine, noble and great in the world and for everything immortal. Spring has not yet come although the little blue and white anemones have already been long in the wood. Nina will stay in Kopenhagen until the middle of May and then after a few days in Kristiania, on once more to Troldhaugen. "Peer Gynt" is now on at the King's Theatre and each performance is a sell-out. Edvard's music sounds quite enchanting. In a postscript Nina remarks that "kleine Toni" [Anton Maaskoff] has gone to Buenos Ayres. Dated 24 Apr 1913.
