Дорогой друг!

Разрешение, конечно, даю,—но не лучше ли подождать? Через 9 дней я буду в Петербурге. Надеюсь, что увидимся.

Обнимаю, П. Чайковский

20 February

Dear friend!

Permission is, of course, given—but wouldn't it be better to wait? Template:Ref In 9 days' time I shall be in Petersburg. I hope to see you.

I hug you, P. Tchaikovsky

Notes and References

  1. Writing to the composer on 14/26 February 1892, Eugen Albrecht had asked permission to perform the original version of the string sextet Souvenir de Florence (which Tchaikovsky had just finished revising) at a concert of the Saint Petersburg Chamber Music Society [back]
