Franz Schubert's Works: Complete and Authoritative Edition (German: Franz Schubert's Werke: Kritisch durchgesehene Gesammtausgabe), also known as the Collected Edition, is a late 19th-century publication of Franz Schubert's compositions.[1] The publication is also known as the Alte Gesamt-Ausgabe ("the former complete edition"), abbreviated as AGA, for instance in the 1978 edition of the Deutsch catalogue,[2] in order to distinguish it from the New Schubert Edition.


The twenty-two series (some in several volumes) were published from 1884 to 1897 by Breitkopf & Härtel.[1] Eusebius Mandyczewski was one of the main editors. From 1965 Dover Publications started to reprint this edition, and later it was made available at the IMSLP website.
