About This Site
The Albert Lortzing Website is designed and maintained by George Overmeire
The “Allgemeine Musikalische Zeitung” was an important periodical, published by Breitkopf & Härtel, the music publisher from Leipzig who, starting with “Zar und Zimmermann”, published almost all Lortzing’s operas. Announcements and reviews of published sheet music and performances provided the main part of the contents. I have collected on this website all the articles on Lortzing that appeared in the AMZ between 1838 and 1848.
