Would anyone care to identify or comment upon the musical quotations Korngold chose? Is there a thread common to all four of them?

Many thanks,
Dennis

These look like quotations from his operas. The first says "Ring des Polykrates" to the right, the second is the Violanta chord from "Violanta".

The third I recognize outright from DIE TOTE STADT (Gluck, was mir verblieb), and the fourth says "Heliane" to the right of it.
