Paul Sacher, Esq.


Pratteln (Basel).


Dear Mr. Sacher,

                Thank you for your letter of the 4th April. I have again enquired from the printers concerning the PERSEPHONE score and they have promised to deliver it on the 25th April. Let us hope they keep their promise. We shall send the score to you immediately after receipt (in loose sheets).

                We received some corrections for the SINFONIA CONCERTANTE from America, but no other score. I will, therefore, send you our score shortly after Easter.

                As for the initials of the critic of the NATIONALZEITUNG, I have been told the name but I do not know anything about the person concerned. Anyhow, I will follow this matter up and give you first information. – The soloist of the SINFONIETTA GIOCOSA was Lisa Fuchsova, a very good Czech pianist living in England.

                                                               Yours sincerely,
