Correspondence

  • OJ 8/3, [80] Handwritten postcard from Heinrich Schenker to Moriz Violin, dated January 12, 1920

    Schenker comments acerbically on the settlement with Emil Kornfeld. — Reports on a contract Halm has shown him. — Inquires about the children's health and reports that Wilhelm has been taken ill.

  • OJ 6/7, [49] Handwritten letter from Schenker to Moriz Violin, dated July 10, 1930

    Acknowledging his recent letter to Jeanette, Schenker expresses his regret that Violin and his son Karl are still troubled by health problems and reports some recent news. Furtwängler's intervention with Breitkopf & Härtel on behalf of Weisse's Octet was in vain; he had also sought the same firm's agreement to publish the "Eroica" analysis, but this will now appear as the third Meisterwerk Yearbook. The Schenkers are expecting many visitors in Galtür, including Furtwängler, Reinhard Oppel, Schenker's nephew and his wife, and Jeanette's sister and family. Hoboken is prepared to fund the publication of a collected edition of the works of C. P. E. Bach (with financial support from the city of Hamburg), but Schenker is cautious about this because his paid involvement in the project might result in work that would jeopardize progress on Der freie Satz. He has been included in the latest edition of Meyers Konversations-Lexicon, and has received favorable citation in Romain Rolland's latest Beethoven book.
