Transcription of the letter

Dear Mr. Sacher,

                Thank you for your letter of the 2nd February. I have asked our people to send you a correct set of solo parts of the Martinu “Sinfonia Concertante”. The printing of the parts was already in progress when you discovered the mistake, so we had to make do with a makeshift by overpasting the passages concerned. The Full Score is not ready yet, and – as you know – with the printing situation as it is it’s risky to predict a date, but I suppose it will be ready in the spring. We have noted that you want two copies when it does appear.

                The Harewoods are at the moment in Italy enjoying Verdi and other performances in Milan, Rome and Naples. They will be back  before the end of the month. He’s writing now a lot, and I wonder whether you get regularly his magazine Opera. If we come to Basel, or near it, we shall certainly not fail to visit you.

                With kindest regards to you and Mrs. Sacher,

                                                                               Yours sincerely,

                                                                               [podpis] Erwin Stein

                                                                               Erwin Stein
