Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Henri Temianka

Letter No.: 
Dec 3 [1937]

From R. Vaughan Williams,
The White Gates,
Westcott Road,

Dear Mr Temianka
I think my concerto sounds better with a small orchestra.1
I should like to go through the work with you very much before the rehearsals start.
I shall be in London on Jan 5th & 6th (Free on 5th before 2.30 or after 5.30 - Wednesday not until 4.30). Perhaps these dates are rather too early - if so I will suggest others.
Yrs ever

R Vaughan Williams

1. VW's Concerto accademico, which Temianka was to perform at the Aeolian Hall in London on February 6 1937, conducted by VW.
