Camilla Brünauer and Schenker

Camilla is mentioned a number times in Schenker's diary, and there are records of correspondence sent and received, though none is known to survive. As a representative of the commercial world, she was regarded by Schenker as money-minded. On one occasion, she had asked Schenker for lessons and he had responded defensively, to which she replied: "From Mama Brünauer (letter): declares herself prepared to invite us both [Heinrich and Jeanette were not yet married], and is also in a position to let us participate in the meal despite the war, regrets finally that I cannot spare her one to two lessons on account of work." (OJ 2/5, pp. 554-555, December 29, 1916). It is she who made the telling remark to Marianne Kahn, which Schenker quoted in his diary: "Your pupils surely provide for you during these days, don't they?" (OJ 2/10 p. 832, January 23, 1918).
