WEINSTOCK, HERBERT (1905–1971), U.S. writer and musicologist. Weinstock was born in Milwaukee and attended the University of Chicago. He became a music editor at the New York publishing firm of Alfred A. Knopf (1943–59 and 1963–71). Weinstock was also a prolific writer and published books on Tchaikovsky (1943), Handel (1946), Chopin (1949), and Music as an Art (1953). However, most of his writings were more especially on operatic subjects, including The Opera: a History of its Creation and Performance, 1600 – 1941 (New York, 1941; 19622 as The World of Opera); Donizetti and the World of Opera in Italy, Paris and Vienna in the First Half of the Nineteenth Century (1963), as well as his later works dedicated to the biographies of Rossini (1968) and Bellini (1971). From 1966 he was also New York correspondent for the British journal Opera.
