Religious Background[edit]

According to the entry on Hanslick in the Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians, his mother was Jewish. She converted to Catholicism upon marrying his father. I have thus corrected the prior statement of his religious background. 2006-12-10.

Thanks for the catch. You're correct; her father's name was Salomon Abraham Kisch and was definitely Jewish, and it's written up in the current online Grove. Antandrus (talk) 16:47, 10 December 2006 (UTC)

First Sentence[edit]

The first sentence says:

Hanslick was born in Prague, the son of Joseph Adolph Hanslick, a bibliographer and music teacher from a German-speaking family, and one of his piano pupils, the daughter of a merchant from Vienna.

I cannot make heads or tails of the part where the piano pupils is mentioned. What is that supposed to mean? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 88.203.17.119 (talk) 05:51, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

Hanslick and Wagner[edit]

"By ending his list of theorists with Wagner, he makes his primary critical target obvious." Quotes by Wagner are added in the 6th (!) edition of VMS. Most scholars agree today, that Wagner´s music isn´t the initial target. This section should be revised, I guess... — Preceding unsigned comment added by 212.183.87.184 (talk) 18:42, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
