Sehr geehrter Herr!

mit bestem Dank theile ich Ihnen mit, daß der Artikel in Nr. 10 erscheint. 1 Es wird mich sehr interessiren, wenn Sie mir Neues senden wollen; was Sie andeuten, klingt ja verlockend genug.

Ihr Urtheil 2 über die Bellincioni unterschreibe ich; sie ist im kleinen Finger genialer als die ganze Duse.


In ausgezeichneter Hochachtung
Ihr ergebener

Dear Sir,

With many thanks I am letting you know that the article will appear in No. 10. 1 I would be very interested if you wished to send me something new; what you suggest certainly sounds intriguing enough.

I concur with your judgment 2 about Bellincioni; she has more talent in her little finger than Duse has in her whole body.


In highest esteem,
Yours truly,

Footnotes

1 Schenker's second article for Harden, "Eine jung-italienische Schule?", Die Zukunft, December 3, 1892, reprinted Hellmut Federhofer, Heinrich Schenker als Essayist und Kritiker (Hildesheim: Olms, 1990), pp. 31–34.

2 In "Mascagni in Wien," Schenker does not himself compare Bellincioni with Duse, but he notes a comparison made by the Vienna opera audiences: "The significance of genius manifested by this young lady (our public dubbed her ‘the singing Duse') can hardly be measured today."; reprinted in Hellmut Federhofer, Heinrich Schenker als Essayist und Kritiker (Hildesheim: Olms, 1990), p. 29.) The critical judgment about Duse must have occurred in some other correspondence from Schenker to Harden.
