New Mattheson Studies by George J. Buelow

This 1984 collection of essays brings together the research on Johann Mattheson (1681-1764), an influential musician and chronicler of musical thought in eighteenth-century Germany. The essays explore the cultural climate of Hamburg during Mattheson's lifetime; Mattheson as a composer; Mattheson's relationship to his contemporaries; and Mattheson's influence on developing musical theories and aesthetics.
