Frau Lili Lehmann als Fidelio. 1 Reiner Eindruck einer hohen reproduktiven Leistung. Freilich, welche leidenschaftliche Hingabe schon Beethoven’s selbst an die Wahrheit im Ausdruck, u. nurum wie viel gesteigerter diese, als bei Mozart! [draft in Ser. B, p. 6]

Footnotes

1 Fidelio was performed at the Court Opera in Vienna in August 1898, but with Sophie Sedlmaier as Leonore. It is unclear on what Schenker is basing his reaction here. — This entry has on chronological grounds been moved from its textual placement on Ser. A, p. 7 to p. 5.
