Notes and References

  1. Dated by the editors of П. И. Чайковский. Полное собрание сочинений, том XVII (1981) to the late 1860s, on the basis of the formal tone of the note, and the fact that Tchaikovsky asking for a loan rather than an advance on royalties from Jurgenson's publication of his works.
