“Aus der Musikstadt” is the piano collection by ten composers who lived in the 19th century in Vienna, and it was published by Viennese Gustav Lewy in 1892. The composers were Josef Bayer, Alfons Czibulka, Johann Nepomuk Fuchs, Robert Fuchs, Joseph Hellmesberger jun., Karel Komzák jun., Carl Millöcker, Adolpf Müller jun., Johann Strauss jun. and Franz von Suppé. The title of each short piece was designed beautifully and the composer's portrait was also drawn on the side of the title. The score puts prominent composers in order seems to be an musical exihibition. “The International Exhibition of Music and the Theatre” was just held in Vienna in 1892. With the Exibition the concept which treats music as goods was born. In that sense, a score was not only for a performance but also a souvenir. It seems that the collection was related to the Exhibition, because it was not so expensive and good-looking, and it looks like a famous composers' exihibition.
