About This Item

Wien-Leipzig: Universal-Edition [PN U.E. 10.050], 1932. Small folio. Original publisher's wrappers. 1f., 13 pp. Publisher's catalogue dated July 1932 to verso of lower wrapper.

Autograph inscription from the composer to title in black ink: "Dr. David Bach herzlichs überreicht von seinem Webern Nov. 1932."

From the collection of the pianist and teacher Jacob Lateiner (1928-2010), with a note laid in from the distinguished music antiquarian Albi Rosenthal (1914-2004): "for Jacob - as a souvenir of his first (and frustrating) visit to Otto Haas - Albi, London, 12 May 1967."

Wrappers slightly worn and soiled. First Edition. Moldenhauer pp. 714-15.

"Alban Berg repeatedly assured the composer of his special admiration for this work. On 19 August 1932 he wrote: 'This Quartet is a miracle. What amazes me above all is its originality...' Schoenberg was equally impressed. On receipt of the printed score he thanked Webern for the 'fabulous piece.' Today theorists recognize the Quartet as a masterpiece of formal construction." Moldenhauer pp. 426-27.

Dr. David Josef Bach (1874-1947), an important figure in Viennese cultural life in the first quarter of the 20th century, was a significant patron of the arts, an academic, and a writer who championed the dissemination of the arts to the masses. Many important musical and visual artists were indebted to his patronage and support, including Webern, Schoenberg (who wrote an atonal birthday canon of 21 measures for him in 1934) and Oskar Kokoscha (who executed a portrait of him).
