Description

An einen befreundeten Herrn, wohl mit Beziehungen zum "Figaro" in Paris, nachdem er sich über den dort erschienen Artikel "Un Voyage musical en Russie" von André Maurel geärgert hatte. Besonders die Schilderung von Wa g n e r s und Hans von B ü l o w s Bedeutung in Russland scheine ihm besonders missglückt zu sein.
"… 1) La musique de Wagner n’est rien moins qu’ignorée en Russie. Non seulement Antoine R u b i n st e i n n’a jamais empéché qu’elle se propageat chez nous, mais c’est justement lui, fondateur de la Société Impériale musicale russe en 1859, qui la fit connaitre à notre public. Wagner lui même vint en Russie en 1863 et y organisa dans les deux capitales de longues series de concerts qui firent époque. Depuis ce temps la musique du grand maitre allemand prit racine dans notre pays. Ses operas sont depuis bien longtemps sur le repertoire des Théatres Impériaux et de tous ceux de la province. La Thétralogie y fut représentée dans les deux capitales 4 fois (en 1888) et y produisit une grande sensation. Quant au répertoire
simphonique en Russie, Wagner y tenait déja une bien large part dans un temps ou à Paris on n’en connaissait pas encore le nom.
M. Lamoureux" (der franz. Violinist und Orchesterchef Charles L.) "n’est pas le premier chef d’orchestre français qui ait été convié … pour diriger un de ses concerts, car M. E. Colonne" (der Komponist und Violinist Édouard C.), "lui a déja fait cet honneur il y a 3 ans …
Pour conclure laissez moi vous confesser que j’ai été bien justement affecté … que mes compatriotes … aient organisé un banquet ou l’on a ‘conspué’ Hans de Bülow … Hans de Bülow malgré ‘ses gestes ridicules et ses façons estravagantes’ est un chef d’orchestre de génie … Ils ont oublié que si la musique russe est en ce moment reconnue en Allemagne c’est a Bülow que nous le devons, car il y avait un temps ou il s’etait dévoué pour cette cause … Et ce qui surtout me navre, c’est que l’on ‘conspue’ Hans de Bülow juste au moment ou le pauvre grand artiste se meure …"
Aus dem Todesjahr, geschrieben während seiner letzten Konzertreise.
