A warm note from the great conductor, hoping for a meeting in Berlin, once he returns to Germany. Maria Proelss (1892-1962) was a pianist and painter, about whom Theodor Adorno said, upon her death, that "she played the piano most unconventionally: without all consideration, purely out of the need to realize the sense of the music . . . in stark contrast to the positivistic streamlined musicians who have made their way to the top in the last forty years."
