Allgemeine deutsche Musikzeitung

The Allgemeine deutsche Musikzeitung (subtitled: Wochenschrift für die Reform des Musiklebens der Gegenwarts) was a musical specialist journal, which appeared from 1874 to 1884, first in Leipzig and Kassel, then in Charlottenburg.[1] In the early years it was called Allgemeine Deutsche Musik-Zeitung – Wochenschrift für das gesammte musikalische Leben der Gegenwart.

From 1878 to 1881, the music critic Wilhelm Tappert, a "defender of the New German School" was its editor.[2] From 1881 to 1884, the composer Otto Leßmann [de] was the owner and editor (he too was "active in a progressive sense").[3] Among the regular contributors was the music writer Heinrich Reimann,[4] the organist and music writer Albert Heintz (responsible for the theme "Richard Wagner"), the composer Luise Adolpha Le Beau as well as Hans von Bülow, whose Skandinavische Concertreiseskizzen[5] were published from April to May 1882.[6]

In 1885, the Allgemeine deutsche Musikzeitung merged with the Allgemeine Musikzeitung, still with Otto Leßmann in double management.[3]
