Otto Erich Deutsch (September 5, 1883November 23, 1967) was an Austrian musicologist. He is best known for compiling the first comprehensive catalogue of the works of Franz Schubert, first published in 1951 in English, new edition in 1978 in German. It is from this that the D. numbers used to identify Schubert's pieces are drawn.

Following his studies of art history and literature in Viennamarker and Grazmarker, he worked as a lecturer at the Department of Art History of the University of Viennamarker and as a librarian at the musical archive of Anthony van Hoboken. Being of Jewish origin, he was forced to live in exile in Cambridgemarker, England, from 1939 to 1951, thereafter in Vienna again.

He also wrote many articles on Schubert and Mozart, and compiled "documentary biographies" (collections of contemporary documents concerning the subject) on Schubert, Mozart and Handel.

Deutsch was a close friend of Heinrich Schenker. His niece Sophie Deutsch studied with him until her premature death.

Deutsch is interred in an honorary grave of the Vienna Central Cemeterymarker (group 40, no. 12).
