Hochgeehrter Herr Doctor!

Ihre prächtige, sehr interessante, praktische Ausgabe Händelscher Orgelkonzerte ist heute (auf dem Umwege über die Schlösselgasse) zu mir in die Schlüsselgasse gelangt. Ich habe sie sofort durchgesehen und mich daran herzlich erfreut. Nehmen Sie meinen verbindlichsten Dank für die liebe Sendung. 1

Ob Sie wohl vor 5 oder 6 Tagen meine Rohrpostkarte 2 erhalten haben? Dann folgte die Karte zum B[eethoven] -kurs. 3

Ihre Ausgabe Ph. Em. Bach 4 wird dabei paradieren, vermutlich im 2. Vortrag.


Schönste Grüsse

Very dear Dr. [Schenker],

Your magnificent, very interesting, practical edition of the Handel organ concertos has reached me today (over the detour by way of the Schlösselgasse) in the Schlüsselgasse. I looked them over immediately and was greatly pleased by them. My sincerest thanks for kindly providing them. 1

I am wondering whether you perhaps received my pneumatic postcard 2 five or six days ago. The tickets for the Beethoven course followed afterward. 3

Your edition of C. P.E. Bach 4 will be paraded there, presumably in the second lecture.


Warmest greetings
