Dates of existence



A.M. Schlesinger was a publishing firm founded in Berlin in 1810 by Adolph Martin Schlesinger (1769-1838). A second firm was established in Paris by his son Maurice Schlesinger, under the name M. Schlesinger (1821-1846), and another son, Heinrich Schlesinger, continued the Berlin company after his father's death. Composers published by the firm include Ludwig van Beethoven, Felix Mendelssohn, Hector Berlioz, Franz Liszt, and a series of posthumous publications of piano compositions by Frederic Chopin. The Berlin company was sold to Robert Lienau in 1864, who continued to use the Schlesinger name until the twentieth century.
