Paul Stefan

Paul Stefan, born Paul Stefan Grünfeld (25 November 1879, Brno - 12 November 1943, New York) was an Austrian music historian and critic.

Paul Stefan came to live in Vienna in 1898.[1] He attended courses in law, philosophy and art history at the University of Vienna, before studying music theory with Hermann Graedener and possibly composition under Arnold Schoenberg.[2] From 1922 to 1937 he edited the Austrian music journal Musikblätter des Anbruch (entitled simply Anbruch from 1929).[3]
