LETTERS OF MUSIC PUBLISHING HOUSE BREITKOPF & HAERTEL IN JOHANN BATKA MUSIC COLLECTION (Listy hudobneho vydavatelstva Breitkopf & Haertel v hudobnej zbierke Jana Batku)
Languages of publication
The article deals with one of the music publisher, Breitkop & Haertel, projects: with the edition of the complete works of Franz Liszt. Some distinguished musicians from Hungary, mostly Liszt's pupils, participated in revision of several Franz Liszt's works of 'Hungarian character', that means the compositions, where the title indicated the Hungarian relations and they were written in Hungarian language. Bratislava city archivist and music critic Johann Batka, as the only non-professional contributor from (previous) Hungary, also cooperated at this project. The correspondence between Breitkopf & Haertel and Johann Batka, which was saved in Batka´s personal collections in the Bratislava City Archive, is the evidence of one historical period of the Leipzig publishing house.
