  • OJ 6/7, [34] Handwritten letter from Schenker to Moriz Violin, dated June 30, 1927

    Schenker answers Violin's birthday greetings letter philosophically. He is able to work on the final version Der freie Satz at leisure and in good spirits. He reports on the establishment of an archive of photographic reproductions of autograph and gives an account of a visit from Violin's sister Fanny: in return for a picture of Karl Violin, he is enclosing two pictures of himself and one of Jeanette. Finally, he urges his friend to spend part of the summer in Galtür.

  • OJ 6/7, [44] Handwritten letter from Schenker to Violin, dated November 24, 1929

    After reply to some of the more personal points in Violin's previous letter, Schenker welcomes his friend's efforts to look for a publisher for the Eroica Symphony monograph, noting that, in spite of the difficulties that Hertzka has caused him, his books are still in print and his status as a theorist has been acknowledged by the the fact that the universities of Heidelberg and Leipzig have expressed an interest in appointing him. A recent article in the Deutsche Tonkünstler-Zeitung will give Violin further ammunition when approaching a publisher. That same issue also contains an article by Schoenberg touching on various canonic works (Bach, Prelude in C sharp minor for the Well-Tempered Clavier, Book 1; Beethoven, Seventh Symphony, finale; Mozart, slow introduction to the "Dissonant" Quartet). He feels that it is beneath his dignity to make a formal reply; but to illustrate what he means, and why he is contemptuous of Schoenberg, he provides several voice-leading graphs and other music examples concerning these works.
