Paul Waldersee (Arranger)

Born: September 3, 1831 - Potsdam, Germany
Died: June 14, 1906 - Königsberg, Germany

Graf von Paul Waldersee was a distinguished editor of the musical classics. From 1848 to 1871 he was an officer in the Prussian army, but after the latter date devoted himself wholly to music, taking an active part in the preparation of Breitkopf & Härtel's great editions of Mozart and L.v. Beethoven. He also edited the enlarged reprint of Köchel's Mozart-catalogue. An important publication for which he was mainly responsible was the Sammlung Musikalischer Vorträge, which appeared from 1879 to 1884, and included monographs by various distinguished writers on the great masters, partly biographical and partly analytical. He contributed to the most important musical periodicals of Germany.
