A. Michaelis

cover 1888



A. Michaelis operated briefly in 1888 in Leipzig. It was probably founded by Alfred Michaelis (1854—1914) a composer and writer of theoretical books. It published works by Michaelis, Wilhelm Rudnick (1850—1927) and several women composers such as Charlotte Sporleder and Josephine Lang (1815—1880). In fact Michaelis himself wrote a dictionary of women composers: Frauen als schaffende Tonkünstler. Ein biographisches Lexikon (Monatsbericht (1888), p.512)
From 1889 Alfred Michaelis found other publishers for his works: Hofmeister, Merseburger, and Siegismund & Volkening.
Presumably not related to a Berlin music engraver named A. Michaelis, active 1844.
