# Letter from Nadia Boulanger about Symphony No. 2, Op. 41:

Below is a letter from Nadia Boulanger to Tomas Svoboda's publisher in 1979, 6 months before Mme. Boulanger's death. Her letter was inspired by the "2nd Movt - Lento." of Tomas Svoboda's "Symphony No. 2 (of Love & War), Op. 41." [Click image to enlarge]
