Scope and content

Nina writes to Anna that she may write in whichever language she likes and rather deprecatingly claims that she is most stupid. In Leipzig they had always spoken in German as they did not know Russian. Nina recalls the days with Tchaikovsky, which were the highlight of those times. Nina mentions that Tchaikovsky, Brahms and Edvard are all dead but they have the personal and artistic memories of them. Nina is pleased that Tony Maaskoff has played so well in Vienna. A Wunderkind Russian violinist, Spiwakovsky, has been worshipped in Kopenhagen but Nina has not yet heard him: Nina is not keen on child wonders.
