Süddeutsche Hofkapellen im 18. Jahrhundert

Eine Bestandsaufnahme

Schriften zur Südwestdeutschen Hofmusik

Since the Middle Ages, next to churches the courts have been the most important employers for professional musicians. The important role of court music in European and particularly German music history has not been reflected in the efforts made by musicological scholarship in the past. Although there are numerous studies on particular courts, comparative studies are still lacking.

This publication documents the current state of research on the most important court chapels, as well as selected smaller aristocratic chapels in southern Germany during the eighteenth century.

About the editors:

Silke Leopold  studied musicology, theater history, Italian literature and German literature in Hamburg and Rome. She was a Research Fellow at the Department of Musicology of the Deutsches Historisches Institut in Rome (1975–1978). As an assistant to Carl Dahlhaus, she taught at the TU Berlin and as a visiting lecturer at Harvard University. She was Full Professor of Musicology at the University of Paderborn and the Detmold University of Music (1991–1996) and Ordinaria and Director of the Department of Musicology (1996–2014) at the University of Heidelberg, where she was also Vice-Rector for Academic Affairs from 2001 to 2007. The main focus of her research lies in the music of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries and in the history of opera.

Bärbel Pelker studied Music Education at the Staatliche Hochschule für Musik Heidelberg-Mannheim, her subjects being the cello and singing, and Musicology and German Studies at the Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg (1990 doctorate). From 1990 to 2015 she worked as a research assistant at the Heidelberg Academy of Sciences and Humanities, first in the research department History of the Mannheim Hofkapelle  and then History of Southwest German Court Music. Since 2015 she has been Vice President of the Gesellschaft für Musikgeschichte in Baden-Württemberg. Her research interests are the music of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries as well as the social and institutional history of south-west German court orchestras in the eighteenth century.
