Abstract

This volume, which accompanies the exhibition of the same name, honours Leopold Mozart (1719-1787), who was not only a musician, composer and teacher, but also a well-informed observer of his time. His letters contain numerous details on music and cultural-historical themes, and his notes on his stay in the summer residence of Schwetzingen in the Palatinate are invaluable. The authors investigate this information and relate it to the knowledge of their respective disciplines. The result is a comprehensive picture of the Electoral Palatinate summer residence of 1763, a music-historical focal point in the third quarter of the eighteenth century.

Abstract

"In the two centuries since Mozart’s La clemenza di Tito was first performed, and the almost three centuries since Metastasio created the libretto, many rumours, myths and prejudiced opinions have gathered around the work, creating a narrative that Mozart, Mazzolà and their contemporaries would scarcely recognise. The essays in this book contribute ideas, facts and images that will draw the twenty-first-century reader closer to the events of Central Europe in the late eighteenth century, and these new facts and ideas will help peel off some of the transmitted accretions that may hinder a modern listener from enjoying and understanding the opera in all its fullness. In this sense the essays present the reappraisal promised in the title. The book is a product of the Performing Premodernity research project, funded by the Swedish Foundation for Humanities and Social Sciences and based at the department of theatre studies of Stockholm University. Envisioned and edited by Magnus Tessing Schneider and Ruth Tatlow, the five essays by internationally renowned Mozart scholars are preceded by a chronology and a selection of original documents presented in new and revised parallel translations."
