Österreichischer Bundesverlag.

Austrian publishing house. It was set up in 1771 by Empress Maria Theresa to publish school books, and from its inception it published music, particularly songbooks. After the reopening of the firm in Vienna in 1945, a music department was set up under Wilhelm Rohm in 1946 which produced new music in a modern idiom required by Austrian music education, and concentrated on following modern educational principles. The resultant output has included music for all types of schools, books on music theory and history, music for amateur performance, contemporary Austrian chamber music, instrumental tutors, a series on elocution (with records), and folksongs, folkdances and wind music from all parts of Austria. In addition the series Denkmäler der Tonkunst in Österreich was published by the firm from volume lxxxv onwards. In 1961 Alois Rottensteiner was appointed head of the music department. The firm also publishes the periodical Musikerziehung, established by Joseph Lechthaler in 1947, which under Rohm, its chief editor until 1961, and since then under Eberhard Würzl, has published articles by Austrian and foreign authorities on every aspect of modern musical education. Musikerziehung was until 1961 the official journal of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft der Musikerzieher Österreichs and the mouthpiece of the Vienna Mozartgemeinde, the Österreichischer Musikrat (UNESCO) and the Franz Schmidt Gemeinde.

WILHELM ROHM


Osthoff, Helmuth

(b Bielefeld, 13 Aug 1896; d Würzburg, 9 Feb 1983). German musicologist, father of Wolfgang Osthoff. His early musical training was in Bielefeld and Münster, and after serving in the war (1915–18) he studied musicology, art history and philosophy, starting in 1919 at Münster University, but transferring in 1920 to Berlin University. At Berlin he was decisively influenced by Johannes Wolf, who introduced him to medieval and Renaissance music. He took the doctorate at Berlin in 1922 with a dissertation on the lutenist Santino Garsi of Parma, and remained in Berlin for a year to study composition with Wilhelm Klatte, the piano with James Kwast and conducting with Gustav Brecher, for whom he subsequently worked as a répétiteur for the Leipzig Opera (1923–6). He then became an assistant lecturer in the musicology department of Halle University where, with the decisive support of Schering, he became deeply involved in the study and performance of early music. In 1928 he became Schering’s chief assistant in the music history department of Berlin University. He completed his Habilitation there in 1932 with a dissertation on the Netherlands and the German lied (1400–1640), and subsequently taught there as Privatdozent. He was sent to Frankfurt University in 1937 and appointed reader and director of the musicology institute in 1939. Following a temporary suspension during denazification in 1945, he became full professor there in 1950; he retired in 1964.

The period of Osthoff's researches extends from the late Middle Ages to Mahler, but his most eminent work concerns the Renaissance and consists of valuable source studies, analytical and historical works, and numerous editions. Within this field he concentrated particularly on Josquin Des Prez, on whom he wrote a definitive monograph (1962–5). He also composed songs, a cantata and a string quartet.
