Scope and content

The Brodskys have just received a letter from Lady Elgar reporting that Sir Edward is unwell. The Brodskys hope that he will soon be quite well again. Mrs. Brodsky tells Lady Elgar that her husband plays or studies the Elgar Concerto every day. He adores the work and makes everyone who hears him play it love it. He played it last summer in the south of Russia. He is going to play it with the Hallé under Richter next season and will play it probably in Vienna in January 1914. Mrs Brodsky thanks Lady Elgar for her kind invitation to visit them in their new home [probably Severn House, 42 Netherhall Gardens, Hampstead, whither the Elgars moved on New Year's Day 1912.]
