Wed. [early August, 1936]
Dear Carlos -----
Ortega told me you planned to repeat the Concerto at the first workers concert on Saturday or Sunday. Let me know as soon as you know definitely -- and also about a rehearsal if any.
I happened to see the Pollares article in the Universal yesterday and was much amused. One would think I was Respighi and the Concerto was the Pines of Rome! I had a hard time recognizing myself in the article, as you can imagine. But seriously, I hope such attacks do no harm to the Sinfónica.
Would you please ask Artmando to send me the 'Grafico' and 'Nacional' reviews as I have not seen them.
My best love to you
