The Introduction is by Paul Henry Lang, who notes: "Einstein was only two generations removed from the founders of musicology, but he himself contributed generously to its rapid progress. He completely reshaped the monument of Mozart research, Kochel's celebrated Verzeichniss, and he opened an entire new Renaissance wing in the museum of music with his great work on the Italian madrigal. His long tenure as editor of one of the most distinguished journals of musicology, Zeitschrift fur Musikwissenschaft, spanned a brilliant era of scholarship, of discoveries, of the coming of age of a host of young scholars, all of whom were helped and encouraged by the unselfish and dedicated editor." Dust jacket present. First Edition.
