Notes and References

  1. This note was originally attached to Letter 4688 to Sergey Borisoglebsky, 13/25 May 1892, in which Tchaikovsky gave instructions that the singer should take it to "Jurgenson's" to obtain a copy of the full score of Iolanta. It is unclear whether this referred to Pyotr Jurgenson's store in Moscow, or his brother Osip's in Saint Petersburg.
