Scope and content

Grieg celebrated his 60th birthday on 15 June 1903. Grieg thanks the Brodskys for the telegram which did not compensate for their absence from his birthday celebrations. It was a week of festivities and worth the journey for Bjornson's speech alone. Julius Röntgen was the only person from abroad. Wolff cancelled at the last minute. Grieg could write much but has more than 500 telegrams, letters and messages to answer. Halvorsen and his wife have been with the Griegs since yesterday and send greetings. In a P.S. Grieg thanks Frau Picard [Olga Skadowsky] for her telegram. In the postscript Grieg mentions that he invited the whole orchestra [The National Theatre Orchestra of Christiania] for breakfast on a mountain near Bergen. They came in a conveyance and Bjornson spoke for tolerance and how he spoke! Dated 25 Jun 1903.
