Ludwig Thuille was a German composer and pedagogue. Lobetanz was one of 3 operas he composed. Thuille asks about the scheduling and casting of Lobetanz, then describes a rather poor performance of an otherwise highly praised work by the unnamed recipient. The work discussed is manifestly Mahler's 2nd symphony, so the letter has been written to Gustav Mahler, German composer and conductor.
