Footnotes

1 Balduin Bricht was the author of a review of Masterwork III, which appeared in the Volks-Zeitung, No. 27326, May 18, 1931, 77th year (No. 137), p. 5. A clipping is preserved in the Schenker Scrapbook (OC 2) on page 82. Schenker characterized Bricht’s review as "the first truly appreciative voice from the Viennese newspaper forest" (diary entry, May 22, 1931).
