Footnotes

1 Adolf Beyschlag, author of Die Ornamentik der Musik (Leipzig: Breitkopf & Härtel, 1908). By “Artikel,” Schenker means an entry in that work.

2 Schenker worked on Brahms’s Piano Quartet No. 3 in C minor, Op. 60, in October 1913 with a view to publishing his material in his planned Kleine Bibliothek . The material survives only in manuscript, in the hand of Jeanette Kornfeld, headed “Kl. Bibl.” and annotated in Heinrich’s hand “Brahms Clavier Quartett Cmoll op. 60,” as OC 34/161–67 (mvt 1), 168–71 (mvt 2: Scherzo), and 172–74 (mvt 3: Andante), mostly text with measure numbers but with a page of sketches for the Andante (175) – no notes on the Finale. This is the only lesson at which he is recorded as discussing the work with Elias. Other pupils were Sofie Deutsch, Brünauer, Weisse, and Breisach.

3 Herman Roth, ed., 25 Geistliche Lieder (aus dem Schemellischen Gesangbuch) für eine Singstimme und basso continuo (Leipzig: C. F. Peters, [n.d.]), a copy of which, with annotations in Schenker's hand, is preserved at OJ 25/1. No. 3 is “Selig! wer an Jesum denkt” (BWV 498).
