Footnotes

1 Receipt of this postcard is not recorded in Schenker's diary.

2 Elisabeth Rudorff, daughter of Ernst Rudorff. A letter from her dated January 11, 1909 (OJ 13/36, [1]) inquires about an Urtext edition of keyboard works of C. P. E. Bach, to which the present letter is undoubtedly an indirect response.

3 UE548 = Schenker, ed., Phil. Em. Bach, Klavierwerke .

4 UE936 = Schenker, ed., G. F. Händel, Orgelkonzerte , vol.1.
