6. Juni 1926 Sonntag, schön, feierlich!

— Nach Klosterneuburg, dort Spaziergang mit angenehmsten Gefühlen. Die junge Welt ringsum in Himmel, Wasser u. der Erde aufgenommen; im Stiftkeller gegessen – schöner Ausblick in eine heitere Landschaft (½10–¾3h). Die Ausreise war beschwerlich, auch das Bild der zu den Strandbädern Eilenden peinlich. 1 — Nach der Jause Diktat der Analyse des Menuetts, Klichée des Finale 2 korrigiert.

June 6, 1926, Sunday, fair weather for a holiday!

— To Klosterneuburg, a walk there, with the most agreeable feelings. The young world taken in all around us, in sky, sea and earth; in the monastery restaurant, lunch taken – beautiful view of the appealing landscape (9:30 until 2:45). The trip out was difficult, and the scene of those hurrying to the bathing beaches was painful. 1 — After teatime, dictation of the analysis of the Minuet; music examples for the last movement 2 corrected.

Footnotes

1 An effort to capture a near-idyllic moment poetically. For Schenker, the gentleness of an early summer's day becomes a "young world" visible in everything the eye can take in. The bathing beaches are located on a long, narrow inlet of the Danube, about half a mile east of the monastery.
