37 Years of Complete Editions
Christian Martin Schmidt, full professor of musicology at the Technische Universität Berlin, stands like no other for the tangible, musicologically authoritative status of complete editions and of the performance editions derived from them. Schmidt began working at the Schoenberg Complete Edition 37 years ago, right after obtaining his doctorate. In 1992 he was entrusted with the editorial direction of the Mendelssohn Complete Edition, and since 1997 he has been responsible for the musical volumes of the Eisler Complete Edition. With his 65th birthday on 10 November 2007, his friends, students and colleagues have decided to put together this appreciative festschrift with articles related to his main field of endeavor.
