Content and physical description
Transcription of the letter

[...] I can inform you that Martinu estimated the duration of his SINFONIA CONCERTANTE on 16’. On control I found that the first movement lasts 8’, the second 31/2’ and the last 71/2’, together 19’. I suppose your estimation is too long. A performance will probably not take more than 20’.
