Title

Holdings of the Music Collection of the Herder Institute for Historical Research on East Central Europe

Description

The Music Collection of the Herder Institute encompasses literature on musical theory, printed and handwritten sheet music as well as sound storage media (records, audiotapes, cassettes, CDs, DVDs), both relating to the collection area of the Institute and beyond (including all regions of Eastern Europe). The collection contains numerous files of manuscripts, predominantly by Silesian composers from the 19th and early 20th centuries (including Ella Adaiewsky, Franz Marschner, Günther Bialas, and Gerhard Strecke). Due to the fact that it has evolved over time and is constantly being expanded, this is a largely unique collection that is available to interested users as well as (music) researchers from around the world.

History/Provenance

In 1957, the “Research Center for East German Music History” was established in Freiburg im Breisgau under Walter Wiora and Walter Salmen. Walter Salmen had already begun building a collection in 1950 (including materials on musical folklore and folk song research relating to East Central Europe). In 1959, the research center was relocated to Kiel where it came under the leadership of Elmar Arro (and its scope was also extended to include the Baltic region and Russia). In 1966, the center was moved to Hamburg where it was headed by Fritz Feldmann. The emphasis at this point became Silesian music history and building a collection of handwritten sheet music. In 1973, the “Research Center for East German Music History” was transformed into the Department of Music History at the Herder Research Council and the entire stock was handed over to the Herder Institute in Marburg. The stock relating to the music (history) of East Central Europe, which is now housed in the Research Library, is being continually expanded and developed through new acquisitions, exchanges, donations and the absorption of estates.
