Scope and content

Northlands, Englefield Green, Surrey. - Donald [Tovey] has telegraphed to say there was a 'glaenzende Uraufführung [glittering premiere]' of his symphony last night, and [Adolf] Busch to say the work is 'most wonderful'. It seems that the Finale did not get rehearsed until yesterday morning, but Donald did it and she is very relieved; expects he 'sat days and nights copying parts' and that the performers were playing with the ink still wet. Is sorry to have criticised Borwick [see 8/92] to whom she is 'personally much attached'; it would be better for Donald if there were more good players, as he would be better understood.
