Geehrter Herr Kromer! 1

Ist es richtig, daß das Manuscript zu Beethoven’s op. 90 (Klav.-Sonate em) in der Stadtbibliothek liegt? So wurde mir kürzlich berichtet. Ist das Mscpt schon abgenommen?

Sodann: ist BrahmsQuinten-Studie an Prof. Dr. Oppel abgegangen?

Für alle Mühen im Voraus meinen besten Dank!


Ihr

Dear Mr. Kromer! 1

Is it right that the autograph manuscript of Beethoven's Op. 90 (Piano Sonata in E minor) is in the City Library ? I was so informed recently. Has the manuscript already been photographed?

One last thing: Has Brahms's Fifths Study been dispatched to Prof. Oppel?

Many thanks in advance for your taking the trouble!
