project: Hofmeister XIX

Research on 19th-century music is hampered by insufficient bibliographical control of printed music. However, the Leipzig publisher Hofmeister published monthly or bi-monthly reports (Monatsberichte) on music publications that permit datings of large numbers of prints after 1829 when the series began: these constitute the single largest inventory of music prints produced in the 19th century. The Monatsberichte are limited by the form in which they were set out and by the fact that no single run of the series exists anywhere in the world. [read more]
