Scope and content

Tchaikovsky sends Brodsky details of the concert programmes: Pabst will play Rubinstein's quintet op.99; Taneiev will play Tchaikovsky's own trio; Siloti and Safonov have not yet decided. Tchaikovsky would like to know when they are coming and if he should book them into an hotel. Tchaikovsky asks what Brodsky intends to play in the second half of the concert: preferably for violin alone to avoid bringing in a piano. Tchaikovsky has, with difficulty, recovered Brodsky's parts in Petersburg. Dated 4 Oct 1889.
