A comprehensive chronological catalog
of the works
of Franz Schubert, compiled by Otto Erich Deutsch. Commonly abbreviated simply as D.
References to Schubert's works are usually accompanied by
their catalog number; one reason for that is that most
of them, among those some of his most
famous ones, were not published in his lifetime, so they
were not assigned opus numbers. The Deutsch catalog
has about 1000 entries, including compositions that were
lost, are fragmentary or were only sketched;
there are 173 opus numbers, including posthumous ones.
It was originally published in 1951 as "Schubert: Thematic
Catalogue of all his works in chronological order" (Dent,
London). In 1978, a revised and extended edition was
released in German, titled "Franz Schubert: Thematisches
Verzeichnis seiner Werke in chronologischer Folge" (Bärenreiter, Kassel; the title is a direct translation
of the previous English one). This second catalog is
sometimes referred to as D2.
