Forgive the slow reply to your letter. I've been moving from New Jersey to Connecticut.
About the four bar phrase -- 24 measures from the end -- that you mentioned, my idea was not to repeat it. However, if you feel I am wrong and want to repeat it I'm agreeable to hearing what it sounds like in your version.
The new year will soon be here and you'll be East before we know it. Looking forward to hearing you on the violin once more.
