Winther, H.Tlocked

  • Kari Michelsen


Norwegian firm of music publishers . It was opened in Christiania in 1822 by the Dane Hans Thøger Winther (1786–1851). He traded in books, sheet music and instruments and also published books on music. In 1823 he set up the first music lending library in Norway. His firm was the most important music shop and publishing house in the country for the first half of the 19th century; it issued almost 200 light musical titles, some through the periodical Amphion. After Winther’s death in 1851 the business was sold by auction.

Winther’s son Edvard ran his own publishing and printing business from 1841. He published three music periodicals, Lyra, Musikalsk Løverdagsmagazin and Musikalsk Album, in which many Norwegian compositions appeared for the first time. Other Norwegian music publishers made much use of his printing firm. The business was taken over by Carl Warmuth in 1878.
