Based on primary sources, many of which have never been published or examined in detail, this book examines the music of the late seventeenth-century composers, Biber, Schmeltzer and Muffat, and the compositions preserved in the extensive Moravian archives in Kromeriz. These works have never before been fully examined in the cultural and conceptual contexts of their time. Charles E. Brewer sets these composers and their music within a framework that first examines the basic Baroque concepts of instrumental style, and then provides a context for the specific works. The dances of Schmeltzer, for example, functioned both as incidental music in Viennese operas and as music for elaborate court pantomimes and balls. These same cultural practices also account for some of Biber's most programmatic music, which accompanied similar entertainments in Kromeriz and Salzburg. The many sonatas by these composers have also been misunderstood by not being placed in a context where it was normal to be entertained in church and edified in court. Many of the works discussed here remain unpublished but have, in recent years, been recorded. This book enhances our understanding and appreciation of these recordings by providing an analysis of the context in which the works were first performed.

Jörg Widmann wurde 1973 in München geboren. Nach erstem Klarinettenunterricht mit 7 Jahren studierte er an der Musikhochschule München und der Juilliard School in New York. Sein Kompositionsstudium, begonnen mit 11 Jahren, setzte er bei Hans Werner Henze fort und vollendete es bei Wolfgang Rihm. Seit 2001 ist Jörg Widmann Professor für Klarinette an der Musikhochschule Freiburg, seit 2009 zusätzlich Professor für Komposition. Seine Werke, deren Besetzung vom Solo über Kammerensembles bis zu Orchestermusik und Opern reichen, werden von namhaften Künstlern wie Christian Tetzlaff, Heinz Holliger, dem Arditti- und dem Minguet-Quartett, Kent Nagano, Paavo Järvi und Pierre Boulez aufgeführt. Zu seinen Auszeichnungen zählen der Paul-Hindemith-Preis (2002), der Arnold-Schönberg-Preis (2004), der Claudio-Abbado-Kompositionspreis (2006) und der Elise Stoeger Prize des Lincoln Center New York für besondere Leistungen im Kammermusikbereich (2008). Diese erste eingehende Studie zur Musik von Jörg Widmann (*1973) behandelt 18 Werke des Komponisten, zusammengefasst in fünf für sein bisheriges Schaffen repräsentativen Kategorien: instrumentale Poesie (die Klaviersonate Fleurs du mal nach Baudelaire, drei Werke für verschiedene Streicherensembles zu Figuren aus griechischen Mythen und das Orchesterwerk Teufel Amor nach einem Fragment von Schiller), die “Trilogie des instrumentalen Singens” (Lied, Chor und Messe für Orchester), die fünf Streichquartette, drei der Kammermusikwerke mit Klarinette (Sieben Abgesänge auf einen tote Linde, Oktett und Quintett) sowie die zwei großen Kompositionen für das Musiktheater (Das Gesicht im Spiegel und Babylon).

A prolific music theorist and critic as well as an established composer, Johannes Mattheson remains surprisingly understudied. In this important study, Margaret Seares places Mattheson?s Pi?s de clavecin (1714) in the context of his work as a public intellectual who encouraged German musicians and their musical public to eschew what he saw as the hidebound traditions of the past, and instead embrace a universalism of style and expression derived from contemporary currents in music of the leading European nations. Beginning with the early non-musical writings by Mattheson, Seares places them in the context of the cosmopolitan city-state of Hamburg, before moving to a detailed study of his first major musical treatise Das neu-er?ffnete Orchestre of 1713, in which he espoused his views about the musics of the past and present and, in particular, the characteristics of the musics of Germany, Italy, France and England. This latter section of the treatise, Part III, is edited and translated into English in the book's appendix - the first such translation available. Seares then moves on to an evaluation of the Pi?s de clavecin as a work in which Mattheson reflects in musical terms the themes of modernism (in the sense of ?a mode) and universalism that are such a strong part of his writings of the period, and a work that represents an important precursor for the keyboard suites of Johann Sebastian Bach and Georg Frideric Handel.
