Gesellschaft für Musikgeschichte in Baden-Württemberg

In cooperation with the Gesellschaft für Musikgeschichte in Baden Württemberg e. V., the following publications will appear in the ortus musikverlag from 2019:

  • Denkmäler der Musik in Baden-Württemberg
  • Quellen zur Musikgeschichte in Baden-Württemberg – Kommentierte Faksimile-Ausgaben
  • Musik in Baden-Württemberg | Noten

The Denkmäler der Musik in Baden-Württemberg were founded in 1993 by Manfred Hermann Schmid and are up to and including Volume 25 a supplement to the comprehensive edition project Das Erbe deutscher Musik, existing since 1935. In the regional orientation and source-oriented edition practice, they are also committed to the Denkmälern der Tonkunst in Österreich, founded 1984. The critical editions are intended to document what has been significant for the region and its history. Up to and including Volume 25, these texts have been published by Strube Verlag München; from Volume 26 on, this will be continued with new edition guidelines (in German) by ortus musikverlag.

The sheet music series Musik in Baden-Württemberg | Noten, published by the Gesellschaft für Musikgeschichte in Baden-Württemberg (GMG) e. V., aims to publish works by composers from the country’s rich musical history in scholarly editions for practical use. In addition to the music text, each issue contains a concise preface that provides information on the composer, original source and edition guidelines. The music text is usually followed by a listing of readings.
