Scope and content

Nina mentions that the Quartet was played the previous evening in Manchester and wishes that she had been there. The Sevcik Quartet from Bohemia was recently in Kopenhagen and played Edvard's Quartet very well, but not rhythmic nor personal enough; the Romance was much too slow. Anna has been giving Nina her attitude towards critics. Nina does not dwell too much on criticism but is sorry that the English press always so much in his favour should diminish him so soon after his death. At Nina's suggestion, Röntgen has taken Edvard's entire musical legacy to Amsterdam to edit it. There are two books of songs and a trio movement. Eventually it will be published by Peters: Mr. Hinrichsen is very pleased with it. His final work, four old Norwegian psalms for baritone solo with choir [Opus 74], is amongst his best work and he died in his artistic power. Dated 13 Nov 1907.
