Pianiste et chef d’orchestre russe. Lettre aut. signée à Samuel Sheldon. Davenport, 16 mars 1967. 1 pp. 1⁄4 sur papier aérogramme. Réponse courtoise du pianiste déclinant les services de son correspondant qui se proposait devenir le secrétaire particulier et directeur artistique. (...) I don’t have any good news for you (...) I personally would advice you to search for a job in a concert agency or something like that. I am very glad you have a great collection of pianists recordings. Your list of favourite pianists is formidable but I am afraid I don’t share your view on more than helf them (...). I am sure that the range of your tastes is very wide which is quite mervelous (...). Etant en tournée aux Etats-Unis, il n’aura pas la pas la possibilité de le rencontrer prochainement ; et lorsqu’il sera de retour en Angleterre au mois de mai, son père lui rendra visite de Moscou. Il aura donc peu de temps à lui accorder et donne pour preuve un aperçu de son emploi du temps chargé ; In the years 1967, I have count only 57 days in England (not all in London !), out of which 20 days will be recording and 13 days of concerts. What is left for resting, travelling and practicing ?! (...).
