Scope and content

Twelvetrees informs Brodsky that he has just accepted the position of principal 'cello in the Hallé Orchestra next season and, as these concerts will hardly provide a living, he asks Brodsky's advice about finding pupils. He has had 15 years’ teaching experience at the RIAM Dublin and wonders if the College of Music has any need of another 'Cello Professor at present. Twelvetrees has decided to give up the Halls and to return to the more civilised life of teaching and concert work. The letter is dated 4 Aug 1921.
