Diabelli, Anton

(Born; Mattsee, 6 Sept 1781; Died; Vienna, 7 April 1858). Austrian music publisher. With Pietro Cappi as business manager, he established the firm Cappi Amp; Diabelli in Vienna in December 1818, specializing in fashionable operatic and dance music. His shrewd idea in 1819 of sending a simple waltz theme to every notable Austrian composer, asking them to send him a variation apiece, gained notice: it resulted in the Vaterländischer Künstlerverein (1824), a set of some 50 variations, and also Beethoven's monumental Diabelli Variations op.120. Diabelli's reputation also rests on his championship of Schubert, whose first (1821) and principal publisher he became. The firm was highly productive as Anton Diabelli Amp; Cie (1824-51) and as C.A. Spina (1852-72), when it published works by Johann Strauss the younger.(c)Groves Dictionaries, MacMillan Publishers Limited, UK
