Edison Denisov à Jean-Marie Londeix 14 janvier 1971
My dear friend, I was very happy to receive your letter with the news. I thank you with all my heart [ed: from the bottom of my heart] for the performance of the sonata, and I impatiently await the cassette so I can hear you. A thousand thanks! [ed: Thank you so much!]
The new changes in the second movement are good and I am absolutely in agreement [ed: with them].
I, as well, have heard nothing from Leduc. [ed note: Publishing Company].
When at the biographical information [ed: archives?], I will send it to you shortly [ed: thereafter?]. There are only two articles with good analyses of my work, but they’re written in Russian, and neither are [ed: yet] published.
If you are able to record the sonata [ed: ensuite] at ORTF, I would ask that you send me a copy of the cassette – I would very much like to have a good quality recording of that piece.
With best wishes and all my gratitude,
