Elsner and plans for the concert in Vienna
Vienna. Fryderyk Chopin writes to Józef Elsner: "Since the day I learnt of the events of 29th Nov. to date I have waited to no other avail except for anxiety and longing; —Malfatti too tries vainly to persuade me that every artist is a cosmopolitan. Even if it were so, as an artist I am only in a cradle, while as a Pole I have begun my third decade of life; I hope, therefore, that knowing me, you will not hold it against me that my older feelings are taking precedence; that I have not yet thought about the concert’s programme. By all means I am nowadays facing far bigger difficulties. Not merely the fact that an unceasing string of vile piano concerts corrupting this type of music puts off local audiences, but also that everything which took place in Warsaw has made my position worse perhaps in an equal measure that it could contribute to my wellbeing in Paris. Yet, I hope that everything turns out fine and I will manage to present my 1st concerto [in F minor] still in the Carnival."
Chopin started to plan his official performance in Vienna at the beginning of 1831. However, it didn’t take place, just like the other planned for April 4 and 17. More information:
