Scope and content

This a very warm letter from Nina to the Brodskys. Nina recalls the happy days with the Brodskys and mentions that it is now 20 years since Edvard died. His music is alive over the entire world. Nina herself still takes part in Grieg evenings. When she spent 5 days in Kristiania en route to Kopenhagen, she played in a Grieg concert [she has not sung there for 13 years]: it was packed: the king and queen were there and the stage was covered with flowers. Never was Grieg's spirit so near as on that night. One of Halvorsens' daughters, Nina Grieg Halvorsen, sang to Nina's accompaniment and finally Nina played the four-handed Norwegian dances with Backer Grondahl. At the end of November she was invited to take part in a Grieg orchestral concert and the same pieces were repeated. She is not going off on tour at the age of 82 but has brought her boat into the harbour. In a postscript she thanks Anna for her little book which she will save for Christmas. Dated 14 Dec 1927.
