ADLER, GUIDO (1855–1941), Austrian musicologist; one of the founders of modern musicology. Born at Eibenschitz (Moravia), he was appointed lecturer in musicology at Vienna University in 1881. He was a founder and editor of the Vierteljahrsschrift fuer Musikwissenschaft (1884–94) and in 1898 succeeded his former teacher, Eduard Hanslick, as professor   of music history at Vienna, a position he held until his retirement in 1927. Adler made Vienna one of the leading centers of musicological training and research. The International Society of Musicology, founded upon his initiative, elected him its honorary president in 1927. He was editor-in-chief of Denkmaeler der Tonkunst in Oesterreich, which he had founded in 1894, but was removed from this position by the Nazis in 1938. He remained in Vienna until his death. His work contributed much to the development of musicological discipline. Important publications are his Richard Wagner (1904), Gustav Mahler (1916), and the Handbuch der Musikgeschichte (1924), which he edited. -BIBLIOGRAPHY: MGG, S.V.; P.
