History

Carl Reinecke (1824-1910), at an advanced age, and his brother operated this firm in Leipzig from 1890, but it was wound up after the premises were destroyed in 1943.

The company published many works by Reinecke, songs and piano pieces by composers such as Josef Liebeskind and Arnoldo Sartorio, and string works by Moritz Schaf and Hans Sitt (violin) and Julius Klengel (cello) including Lyrica, a long series for violin (Sitt) and cello (Klengel). There were some historic items, such as a series of Dittersdorf works to commemorate the 100th anniversary of his death in 1799 (see Symphony in F major), and a book on the Mozart piano concertos. Production was fairly vigorous, for example 40 items in 1895.
