Посылаю тебе две статьи. Вероятно, тебе и всем нашим это будет небезынтересно. Сейчас еду в Берлин.

До свиданья!

Твой, П. Чайковский

I'm sending you two articles [1]. They will probably be of some interest to you and all our lot. I'm off to Berlin now.

Until we meet!

Yours, P. Tchaikovsky

Notes and References

  1. At the sixth Philharmonic Society concert in Hamburg on 8/20 January 1888, Tchaikovsky had conducted his Serenade for String Orchestra, Op. 48; the final movement from the Suite No. 3, Op. 55; and his Piano Concerto No. 1, Op. 23 (soloist: Vasily Sapelnikov). Several German newspapers carried reviews of the concert, although it is not possible to establish which of these Tchaikovsky sent to Kashkin.
