  • OJ 12/6, [30] Handwritten letter from Jonas to Schenker, dated March 16, 1934

    Jonas has mailed off the book [to his publisher]; he hopes that Schenker will approve of it [when eventually he sees it]. It comprises four chapters and two appendices. — He thanks Schenker for the gift of his Syrian Dances. — The Director of the Hochschule für Musik in Berlin, Fritz Stein, has written that he cannot arrange a position for Jonas, whereas Jonas (with support from Furtwängler) had sought only students to whom to give [private] lessons. — Jonas alludes to difficult conditions under which he is working, and describes his conflict with piano teacher Georg Bertram. — Relations with van Hoboken are strained, despite Jonas's having included an appendix about the Photogrammarchiv in his book.

  • OJ 15/16, [94] Handwritten letter from Hans Weisse to Schenker, dated March 15, 1934

    Weisse apologizes for long silence, largely on account of depression at the lack of enrollment at Mannes and of enthusiasm for his recently published Violin Sonata. — At Mannes he lectures about his own work, because it is important to show how Schenkerian theory can have a practical application for composers; his pupil Israel Citkowitz is the only cause for optimism. — At Columbia University, where he "smuggles" Schenkerian theory into his lectures, enrolment continues to be large. — He sends a copy of his Violin Sonata, and promises his Variations on a Popular American Song. — He is not coming to Europe this summer. — Universal Edition is going ahead with a schools' version of Schenker's Harmonielehre, but he is surprised that Alfred Kalmus expects him to be involved in an American edition of this.
