From Paris to Peoria

The American tour of Hans von Bülow, recently divorced from Cosima Wagner, was managed by Bernard Ullman; Bülow's letters to Ullman provide insight into his contract negotiations, which included the sponsorship of the Chickering piano firm. Bülow's performances were recognized for their unfailingly flawlessness and their faithful interpretation. His opening appearances in Boston included the world premiere of the Tchaikowsky first piano concerto. His opening New York appearances included the dedication of the new Chickering Hall.

Keywords:   Hans von Bülow, Bernard Ullman, Chickering piano, Tchaikowsky, Boston, New York
