Joachim Tielke

Kunstvolle Musikinstrumente des Barock

In 1980 Günther Hellwig published his long-awaited book on Tielke: Joachim Tielke. Ein Hamburger Lauten- und Violenmacher der Barockzeit, Frankfurt a. M. 1980.

Since the appearance of this publication, Joachim Tielke (1641-1719) has been recognized by organologists and friends of early musical instruments as one of the greatest masters of his profession. Günther Hellwig's publication has been out of print for many years, a second edition has bee a desideratum. We gladly announce its appearance in 2011.

The new book clearly supercedes Günther Hellwig's in many ways: it has 456 pages with 512 illustrations, the majority in colour. It contains chapters on Tielke's life and work and an extensive oeuvre catalogue covering all 169 surviving instruments and fragments. There are appendices on Gottfried Tielke, Hinrich Kopp, the Fleischer and Goldt families and their instruments.

You may now order it from any bookseller:

Friedemann und Barbara Hellwig: Joachim Tielke. Kunstvolle Musikisntrumente des Barock, Deutscher Kunstverlag Berlin/München 2011, ISBN 978-3-422-07078-3.

Why not order it from the Hamburg bookshop Sautter + Lackmann? They will gladly accept credit cards.

Do not be discouraged from purchasing it because it is written in German, there is a two page English summary densely packed with information, there is a German-English-French glossary, and you will find a wealth of comprehensible information besides enjoying the numerous illustrations.
