Notes

  • Epigraphs:

    'It's not outlandish to imagine that Hitler and Freud passed each other in the street more than once in this concentrated city, or nodded to each other in the coffee-house (where, at a third table, Lenin was earning his living as a professional chess player)...' -- David Dale, newspaper article on Vienna

    'Even the distant and the dead live with us.' -- Ludwig van Beethoven

    'Art is the cry of distress uttered by those who experience at first hand the fate of mankind.' -- Arnold Schoenberg
