The far-reaching impact of the sweeping societal, political, and monetary upheavals in 1989/90-otherwise known as German reunification-on the Deutscher Verlag für Musik offers a case in point for the general consequences on music and music distribution, and exemplifies its specific repercussions on social and economic factors, repertoire, and cultural life. For various reasons, substantial portions of the publisher's cataloge were deleted, while areas pertaining to personell, organizational structure, and ownership were all significantly revamped.
