March 25, 1954
I am coming to Europe, leaving here April 5. I shall be in Rome, at the Composers Congress (at the American Academy) until April 15. On April 30, I will be giving an all-Copland program for the ISCM in Zurich. Therefore, as you see, the dates do not work out well [added in pen: in relation to your Viennese concerts. Sorry!]
All good luck with Statements, and I'll be enormously interested to hear the results.
[added in ink:] P.S. My opera is being premiered on April 1, at City Center.
