Scope and content

Busoni has been delighted to receive Brodsky's letter from Herr Dehn. Busoni wholeheartedly recommends Herr Dayas to Brodsky. In a postscript, he adds that not only is Dayas an outstanding pianist but is also a teacher non plus ultra. With his knowledge, thinking and zeal he will put more famous names in the shade. As a rising pianist he lacks only fame. Busoni realises that fame is exactly what is required in England. Dated 4 Jun 1896.
