Prof. Dr. Herbert Vogg, 1928 - 2021
The Musikwissenschaftlicher Verlag is deeply grieved by the passing of its honorary president, Prof. Dr. Herbert Vogg, who passed away on 29 December 2021.
Born in Vienna, Vogg studied musicology and German before starting his professional life in the music publishing house of Doblinger, where he first completed a music dealer apprenticeship, became editor and, soon after, publishing director, remaining in this position until 1988.
In 1979 he additionally became the managing director of the Musikwissenschaftlicher Verlag. In his total of 23 years in this function he succeeded in completing the Anton Bruckner Complete Edition published under the general editorship of Leopold Nowak. He had promised the gravely ill Leopold Nowak to complete the edition and was able to do so with the aid of internationally renowned specialists. In 2001 the last score volume conceived by Nowak was completed, enabling Herbert Vogg to hand his duties over to his long-standing collaborator Tilly Eder in 2002.
The Hugo Wolf Complete Edition, too, was completed during his tenure. By incorporating the book series of Anton Bruckner Institute of Linz, so important for Bruckner scholarship, the MWV’s portfolio was significantly marked, laying the foundation for continuing scholarship in the framework of the New Anton Bruckner Complete Edition.
