The music criticism of Joseph d'Ortigue

Editions of a further 100 articles have been added to this collection, bringing the total to over 300 (around half the intended number). Joseph d'Ortigue was one of the most prolific and wide-ranging music critics in Paris during the mid-nineteenth century. He had strong views on opera, was closely involved in debates about Catholic church music, and had a keen interest in the music of the past. All these concerns come through in the latest batch of files, written for a weekly music periodical, Le ménestrel [The Minstrel] run by the Paris publishing house Heugel. View the collection in SAS-Space.
