Notes

 

These songs are mentioned only in August Göllerich's biography of Bruckner (completed by Max Auer: GAAB, IV/I, 450):

Alle diese Musenjünger aber waren, wie Frau Marie Lorenz, ein Schwägerin Krzyzanowskis, an Göllerich schreibt, „wie Brüder untereinander‟. Wolf stellte damals die Lieder, die „jener andere‟ (gemeint ist jedenfalls Mahler) Frau Lorenz gewidmet hat, weit höher als seine eigenen Kompositionen.

All these votaries of the muses [Mahler, Rudolf Kryzanowski and Wolf] were, as Frau Marie Lorenz, a sister-in-law of Krzyzanowski wrote to Göllerich 'like brothers' together'. Wolf at that time placed the songs which the 'other one' (Mahler, no doubt, is meant) had dedicated to Frau Lorenz, far higher than his own compositions.

However it is possible that Auer may have misunderstood Frau Lorenz's letter and misattributed the songs. An autograph manuscript set of five songs by Rudolf Krzyzanowski (A-Wn: SM 28.208) is dedicated to 'Meiner lieben, lieben Marie 5 Lieder von Ihren Rudolf' and in an annotation dated Zürich, 7 September 1949, Frau Gertrud Staub-Schlaepfer reported:

Die Widmung besieht sich auf seine damalige Braut Marie Lorenz.

The dedication refers to his then fiancée, Marie Lorenz.

So it seems quite possible that these are the songs referred to in Marie Lorenz's letter to Göllerich.
