Footnotes

1 "Arietta," second movement of Beethoven, Piano Sonata in C minor, Op. 111.

2 See H. Federhofer, Heinrich Schenker nach Tagebüchern und Briefen ... (Hildesheim: Georg Olms, 1985), p. 212, where Steglich's letter is quoted in part. At first Steglich praises Schenker's Erläuterungsausgabe to Beethoven's Sonata Op. 111 then goes on in considerable detail to postulate that in his opinion there are musical connections between the first movement and the Arietta of this sonata, which had not been mentioned by Schenker.
