  • OC 1B/10-11 Handwritten letter from Schenker to Hertzka (UE), dated February 22‒23, 1922

    Schenker returns materials for the Fifth Symphony article, reports a delay in providing information for the facsimile edition of the "Spring" Sonata, and complains that he has futilely lavished time on the purification of the German language for the second edition of Die letzten fünf Sonaten ... Op. 109. — He agrees in principle to Hertzka's idea of an "Urlinie-Ausgabe" of the Beethoven sonatas, and agrees to announce it in Tonwille 2, but asks how the first seventeen sonatas are to be done retrospectively, and rejects the suggestion that his pupils might make the preparatory graphs.

  • OJ 10/3, [29] Handwritten letter from Deutsch to Schenker, dated March 20, 1922

    Deutsch writes that the "Moonlight" Sonata facsimile edition is still being printed, and that he cannot make a decision on the production of a second facsimile edition until the new contract has been agreed with Universal Edition. The contract has been delayed by Universal Edition's dispute with Drei Masken. If they have to abandon plans for the facsimile edition of Beethoven's "Spring" Sonata Op. 24 because of the dispute, Deutsch suggests Beethoven's String Quartet Op. 95 as an alternative.

  • OJ 10/3, [30] Typewritten letter from Deutsch to Schenker, dated April 8, 1922

    Deutsch has learnt from Dr. [Greta] Kraus that Dr. Haas still does not want to allow them to reproduce facsimiles of Beethoven's "Spring" Sonata Op. 24, because he feels bound to Drei Masken. When Universal Edition have confirmed this to Deutsch, Deutsch will ask Schenker to propose a different Beethoven manuscript.

  • OJ 10/3, [37] Typewritten postcard from Deutsch to Schenker, dated May 26, 1922

    Deutsch reports that Drei Masken will not publish a facsimile edition of Beethoven's "Spring" Sonata Op. 24, and will instead publish editions of Beethoven's Piano Sonata in F-sharp Op. 78, a string quartet by Haydn, and Schubert's Winterreise and B minor Symphony.
