  • OJ 15/16, [91] Handwritten letter from Hans Weisse to Schenker, dated March 30, 1933

    In this long letter, Weisse expresses his bitter regret about Otto Vrieslander's reaction to his criticism of a recently published collection of his (Vrieslander's) songs, and to Schenker's exaggerated claims of their worth. Weisse defends his critical stance on the grounds that objective discussions are the only worthwhile ones, and that he took the trouble to write about the songs in a 14-page letter to Vrieslander only for the sake of art (in the Schenkerian sense) and feels hurt both by Vrieslander's personal reaction to Weisse's criticism and by Schenker's defence of the older pupil. — In the final paragraph, he inquires again about gaining permission to make multiple copies of Schenker's foreground graph of the "Eroica" Symphony.
