Bernstein, 449-72; idem., "Music Analysis, Cultural Morality, and Sociology in the Writings of August Halm," Indiana Theory Review 16 (1995): 171-96; Pamela Potter, "Musicology Under Hitler: New Sources in Context," Journal of the American Musicological Society 49.1 (1996): 73-74. I should note that it was precisely music criticism of the type popularized by Kretzschmar that Halm was attempting to educate the public against.
