Notes and Editorial Reviews

Brahms’ biographer Specht tells us of a memorable walk which the composer, aged about 60, took together with Gustav Mahler in Bad Ischl. Brahms expressed his deep pessimism about the future development of music, and vented his conviction that he was the last representative of a great tradition. A young composer was in glowing agreement with this: Heinrich Schenker. His compositions awoke the interest of such different personalities as Brahms, d’Albert and Busoni. But after a dozen works had been published he gave up composing and created arguably the most fascinating system for the analysis of tonal music. All his life, Wilhelm Furtwängler spoke of Schenker as his mentor. — Dirk Joeres
