Example text

Itten, 16 June 1911] For some time now, dear, esteemed Herr Schonberg, I have been meaning to write to you. Unfortunately something always interfered. As you know, we left Prein 1 after a 2-day stay to come here, 2 where I felt pretty well at first until my asthma got very bad again; there were a couple of frightful days and nights. Once it became somewhat more bearable, we meant to return to Vienna, when a new misfortune detained us. Helene struck her head so violently one day that she was overcome by severe dizziness and developed a terrible headache.

At any rate I have come to the conclusion that I must regard the index from 2 standpoints. " But I assure you, dear esteemed Herr Schonberg, that I will keep the index within the limits of length and moderation you desire, so that you will be satisfied. 1. Berghof, located on the Ossiachersee in Carinthia, was the Berg family's summer property, and included both lodging facilities for paying guests as well as dairy and farming operations. 2. Berg had taken snapshots of Schoenberg during his recent stay in Vienna.

I know that from my contribution to the little book about you. 3 Despite the enormous amount of material I had and which I intended to deal with, ultimately, after working long and hard, I wrote something very short, which didn't exhaust so much as a millionth of the essence of your pedagogical gifts. It's the same with composing. Even here I haven't written anything yet. Granted, I've hardly had any time until now. Apart from other things there was the apartment to set up, which has, I think, turned out very beautifully.
