Kinsky, Georg

Georg Kinsky (born Marienwerder, Sept 29, 1882; died Berlin, April 7, 1951), German musicologist, one of the foremost cataloguers of musical instruments and manuscripts of his day, and the principal compiler of Das Werk Beethovens (Munich and Duisburg: Henle, 1955), the standard thematic catalogue of Beethoven's music.

Kinsky worked first in the antiquarian book trade; in 1908, he became assistant to Albert Kopfermann at the Preussische Staatsbibliothek in Berlin; from 1909 to 1927 he was curator and director of the Heyer Musikhistorisches Museum, Cologne; from 1921 until 1932, he also taught in the Musicological Institute at the University of Cologne.

Three letters from Kinsky to Schenker are preserved as OC B/231-234 (1913, 1914, 1920), and one letter from him to Otto Erich Deutsch is preserved as OJ 71/21 (1927).
