Readers' responses to the article on H.H. Zweck in our last issue () have prompted us to include another extract from the work produced by the late Professor Charles Forsythe (193589) of the Wessex Institute of Higher Vocational Education (now Wessex University), Department of Forensic Musicology. Forsythe located and analysed all of Zweck's 547 known compositions and recorded over 1,000 hours of interviews with Zweck between 1972 and the composer's death in 1979. It is of particular interest to musicologists that as with his contemporary, Leonard Zelig, there seems to be no other documentary evidence that Hermann Zweck ever existed. Forsythe's work is the only document in which Zweck appears or is mentioned.

This extract is of a transcription of an interview recorded at the composer's home in Pinner, Middlesex, on 23 July 1975, and concerns his relationship with Fritz Lang.
