Scope and content

Olga writes at great length to Brodsky. At the outbreak of the Great War she was in Wiesbaden and as she could not return to London in the September, she lost her post at the Guildhall School of Music. She then spent a few years in Kobenhagen where she had a few really good pupils. Now she has been staying with her sister Eugenie Lindblad and has a few pupils but is feeling very dispirited. Despite 2 orchestras, the musical life in Stockholm is very poor. Olga enquires about the Hallé and wonders who is the conductor now. Olga recommends conductor Georg Schneevoigt to Brodsky. He is very keen to come to Manchester. His wife was a pupil of Dayas in Helsinfors [Helsinki] and also came to study in Manchester one winter 1901-1902 and was often in Olga's house. In a postscript, Olga adds that, she, born in Brunn, now belongs to Czechoslovakia and may now come to England. The letter is dated 9 May 1921. Not found, 10 Apr 2006
