Scope and content

Saint-Saëns writes to Brodsky to recommend Benoit Hollander who has been suggested as successor to Richter. He is an excellent musician and extremely intelligent. Formerly he was a pupil of Saint-Saëns and Saint-Saëns would be happy to see him in a post worthy of him. Last year, thanks to Hollander, Saint-Saëns was able to achieve absolute perfection in Mozart concertos. Dated 28 Feb 1911.
