P. Tchaikovsky

Notes and References

  1. Dated to between 15/27 October and 30 October/11 November 1888 by the editors of П. И. Чайковский. Полное собрание сочинений, том XIV (1974), on the basis that the score was required by Tchaikovsky for his concert in Saint Petersburg on 5/17 November 1888. Since Pyotr Jurgenson left Moscow for Saint Petersburg on or around 30 October/11 November, this might explain why the letter was addressed to Boris Jurgenson, instead of his father.
