Sauer & Leidesdorf


Contents

History

On July 27, 1822 Ignaz Sauer (1759–1833) and Maximilian Joseph Leidesdorf (1787–1840) entered into a contract to create the publishing company Sauer & Leidesdorf in Vienna. After the contract was dissolved on February 6, 1826 Leidesdorf carried on the business under his own name. In 1832 or 1833 Leidesdorf sold out to the publisher Diabelli. In addition to publishing Leidesdorf's own compositions the firm is today most noteworthy for having published the first edition of the 11 Bagatelles, Op.119, by Ludwig van Beethoven and several songs by Franz Schubert.
