Schoenberg, Arnold. Briefe (Letters from 1910 to 1951). Selected and edited by Erwin Stein. Mayence, Schott, (1958). Large 8vo. 309 pp., impr., 1 l. publisher’s advertisements. With mounted portrait by Man Ray and some ills. Orig. cloth. with time-marked jacket.

“ The publishing of this collection is … an event. Schoenberg himself qualified his letters as a piece of him, and here are published for the first time, seven years after his death, the decisive letter… They bear witness of the historical importance of this musician and man, the initiator of the 12-tone technique and thus of a compositional turning-point …

It should be the last work (the pupil and friend Erwin Stein) rendered for the master and the music world ”

(blurb). – English letters after 1933 are translated into German.
