Historia biográfica

Adolph Brodsky was born in 1851 in Taganrog on the Sea of Azov. At the age of not quite five, he began to play the violin and later became a pupil of Hellmesberger at the Vienna Conservatoire. In 1880 he married Anna Tskadowska in Sebastopol in the Crimea. The following year Brodsky became the first person to play the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto, declared unplayable by Leopold Auer to whom the original dedication was made. From 1883 to 1891 Brodsky taught at the Leipzig Conservatoire and established the Brodsky Quartet. In October 1891 Adolph and Anna Brodsky sailed for New York . After a very strenuous three years as concertmaster and soloist with the New York Symphony Orchestra under Walter Damrosch, Brodsky decided to return to Europe. When in Berlin, Adolph Brodsky received a letter from Sir Charles Hallé inviting him to teach at the recently founded Royal Manchester College of Music and to lead the Hallé Orchestra. Although Brodsky received offers of work from St. Petersburg, Berlin and Cologne and despite his wife's misgivings, Brodsky accepted the Manchester post. Within weeks of Brodsky's arrival in Manchester in 1895, Hallé died and Brodsky took over as principal of the College, a position which he held until his death in 1929.

Alcance y contenido

This photocopy is rather faint and Brodsky's German handwriting is not easy to decipher. This letter which originally enclosed a note from Herr Broadfield, director of the "Gentlemen's Concerts" concerns concert arrangements for Grieg's visit: the chamber [with the violin sonatas] will take place on Wednesday 12 February and the orchestra concert on Thursday 13 February. Grieg will receive 40 guineas and in a postscript Brodsky mentions 42 plus 35 making 77 pounds. Sapelnikoff will be in England in February. Liverpool is not yet definite. The original is dated 20 Dec 1895, and it is unclear when this photocopy was made.
