Grunsky, Karl

Grunsky, Karl (Carl) (born Schornbach, March 5, 1871; died Vaihingen, Aug 2, 1943), writer on music and leading music critic, strong supporter of Wagner and Bruckner.

Grunsky published his influential Musikästhetik in 1907, which went through many editions, also Musikgeschichte des 19. Jahrhunderts (Leipzig, G. J. Göschen, 1902, 2/1908, 4/1923), and Musikgeschichte des 17. Jahrhunderts (Leipzig; Göschen, 1905, 3/1925); and a number of articles on the music dramas of Wagner in 1906-1908, e.g. "Die Rhythmik im Parsifal", Richard Wagner-Jahrbuch (1908), 276-370. See also his contributions to Bruckner's Symphonien erläutert mit Notenbeispielen (Berlin: Schlesinger, n.d.). Federhofer speaks of "a dispute between Schenker and Grunsky" in 1908, regarding Halm and Bruckner (Nach Tagebüchern und Briefen ..., p.134).

Correspondence between Grunsky and Schenker exists at OJ 5/15 (1908 and undated; 5 items), OJ 11/29 (1908: 5 items), and OJ 59/6 (transcripts by Oswald Jonas).
