Scope and content

Facsimile manuscript letter in which Hubert relays how excited he is about meeting up with Ida Carroll after many years before he leaves for Switzerland. He hopes to be able to see him on another visit. He explains that is the conductor Stanley Pope who has given him the opportunity to play at the Royal Festival Hall. He is going to give a recital in November also, and begin a series of five lectures in German on "Virtuoso Piano music from the 18th century to the present." In January, he will have two recitals in the Hague and Amsterdam. In February he is playing one of his favourite pieces, Rachmaninoff's 2nd Concerto, in Geneva. He shares that "quite a number of of my pupils are playing your wonderful 'Sea Idylls' they just adore them. The will be playing a number of them at a student's concert in the near future."
