"Es ist nur ein Dorf". Schwetzingen mit den Augen Leopold Mozarts

On their European tour, the composer Leopold Mozart, his wife and children also made a stop in Schwetzingen. As a well-informed observer of his time, his letters about staying in the Palatinate summer residence are invaluable. The authors follow his observations in the newly published volume from the series "Writings on South-West German Court Music" and relate them to the knowledge of their respective disciplines. This creates a comprehensive picture of the Palatinate summer residence of 1763, a focus of music history in the third quarter of the 18th century.
