First Series. (1. Folge) Edited by the Musikgeschichtlichen Kommission and other official committees with sponsorship of the German government and under the successive editorial leadership of Freiherr von Liliencron, Hermann Kretzschmar, Hermann Abert, and Arnold Schering.

In a newly-edited and critically revised edition by Hans Joachim Moser and C. Russell Crosby, Jr.

The original Breitkopf & Haertel edition of 1892-1931 is here reprinted with critical revisions as published by Akademische Druckund Verlagsantalt, Graz, 1957-1961.

The revisions involve changes of the musical text which are explainad in great detail.

The DDT became a realization when a group of prominent German scholars and musicians including Brahms, Joachim, Chrysander, Spitta, Helmholtz, et al. formulated the plan to reprint certain of Germany's music.

After a slow beginning, it progressed steadily and became one of the most notable monuments of music published within the last 100 years. The DDT is highly regarded for its scrupulous scholarship, historical authenticity and careful selection. The most representative works of each composer were chosen for inclusion in this anthology which embraces a wide variety of music from the past.

Contributing editors, who are identified in each volume, include Max Seiffert,Johannes Wolf, H. Gehrmann, Josef Auer, Eduard Bernouilli, Karl Nef, Hugo Leichentritt, Max Schneider, Otto Gombosi, among others.

Long a valuable source of documentary material for the teacher and student of music history and literature, it was usually to be found in the better-endowed libraries because of its considerable cost. It is here offered in a low-cost microfiche reprint edition to permit broader accessibility. 65 volumes plus two supplements (to vols. 51/52 and 61/62).
