Deleted one cite, added another[edit]

I removed the following reference:

  • Deutsch, Otto Erich (2000). Admiral Nelson and Joseph Haydn, edited by Gitta Deutsch, Rudolph Klein. Norwich: Nelson Society. [1]

I'm not sure it's properly formatted, and the ref is (at least at the moment) inaccessible. Is Deutsch's contribution an essay in the larger work, and is it somehow relevant to the article, other than being an example of his publications?

I also added a cite for Deutsch's best-known work, the Schubert catalogue. Magicpiano (talk) 13:03, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

The importance in Deutsch's work lies in the fact that the publiction of Schubert's works (and hence their opus numbers) bears almost no resemblence to their chronological order (ie date of composition). As a result, there was a perception that Schubert's style did not develop, as well as many other prejudices against Schubert's music - See Alfred Brendel's artical on Schubert in his book 'Musical Thoughts and Afterthoughts'. O E Deutsch's catalogue was an important step in remedying many of the biases against Schubert.
