Scope and content

This is a very warm letter to the Brodskys. Busoni has had several pangs of conscience at not writing after leaving them. Busoni loved Edinburgh and was certainly not disappointed. The score of his violin concerto has not yet been published and he wants to send everything at the same time. However he has sent a copy of the piano arrangement to Dayas. Finally Busoni is most enthusiastic about his stay with the Brodskys and Brodsky's wonderful playing. Dated 2 Feb 1899.
