- (30 March 1804, Hohenems, Austria – 17 January 1890, Vienna)Composer and chief cantor (hazan), first in his hometown at age 13 and then in Vienna from 1826–1891. In the midst of fierce controversy between orthodox and reform Jews about liturgical music, Sulzer brokered a compromise in the "Vienna model," which purged traditional chanting of the coloraturas of enthusiastic cantors while introducing the organ and contemporary European musical language at the same time. His theories are set out in the preface to a two-volume anthology, Schir Zion (1838–1840; 1865–1866).
