  • CA 96-98 Handwritten letter from Schenker to Cotta, dated May 26, 1909

    Schenker raises again the splitting of Kontrapunkt into two half-volumes, or even four installments. — He reports that his Beitrag zur Ornamentik has been adopted by the Academy of Music, despite his being in a constant state of feud with all officialdom. — The Academy's Director is a supporter of his theory. — Schenker outlines how earlier works of his have become influential. — His Kontrapunkt is "eagerly awaited" and will be the "leading work" on the subject; he argues the case for splitting the work on "psychological" and "technical" grounds.
