BOX 9-32 Correspondence to Schoenberg and His Estate, 1894-1959
This subseries consists of holograph and typescript letters that other musicians, organizations, record labels, music publishers, and family members wrote to Schoenberg. The vast majority of correspondents are composers, conductors, theorists, and other musicians. Substantial quantities of letters are present from his students Alban Berg, Hanns Jelinek, Anton Webern, Dika Newlin, and Erwin Stein, as well as his teacher Alexander Zemlinsky. There is also material from composers who built upon Schoenberg’s compoistional methods, such as Ferruccio Busoni, Louis Gesensway, and Oskar Posa.
Schoenberg corresponded with Les Six members Arthur Honneger, Darius Milhaud, and Francis Poulenc. Additional notable correspondents include composers Leonard Bernstein, Ernest Bloch, Carlos Chavez, Reinhold Gliere, Paul Hindemith, Erich Korngold, Gustav Mahler, Maurice Ravel, Gunther Schuller, Igor Stravinsky, and Richard Strauss. The materials also contain letters from conductors Walter Damrosch, Vladimir Horowitz, Hans Richter, Nikolai Sokoloff, and Arturo Toscanini.
There is a large amount of correspondence with music societies and educational institutes with which Schoenberg was associated. Of note are the Akademie für Musik und darstellende Kunst (Academy for Music and the Performing Arts) in Vienna, where he taught music theory and composition, the Verein für musikalische Privataufführungen (Society for Private Musical Performances), which he founded to provide rehearsals for modern works in Vienna, and the Allgemeiner Deutscher Musikverein (General German Music Association) that Franz Liszt and Franz Brendel founded in 1861. Additional societies include the American Academy of Arts & Letters, the American Composers’ Alliance, and the Koussevitzky Music Foundation. There is also correspondence with record labels, music publishers, and symphony orchestras.
Finally, this series includes a significant amount of correspondence with his son-in-law, music editor and theorist Felix Greissle, his wife Gertrud, and their two sons Arnold and Herman.
