Výzva k přihláškám na konferenci "Call for papers: Lost and Found – eine Klarinette für Louis Spohr".
Abstrakt: Between 1808 and 1828, Louis Spohr composed four concertos for the clarinet, all of which were intended for clarinetist Simon Hermstedt from Sondershausen. The first concert, which - as Spohr writes - "at first glance seemed to the clarinetist impossible", was preceded by a description of the "improvements" that Hermstedt had made to his instrument. Nothing is known about the clarinets from Hermstedt, but an instrument that was in the castle museum of Sondershausen had survived in the legacy of his student, Prince Günther Friedrich Carl I. This clarinet was lost in WWII, so that only a photograph and a descriptive text were known. Until recently both clarinets came to light again – both, by the way, clarinets using the Müller system and not in the earlier design described by Spohr. These are shown in a cabinet exhibition in the Musical Instrument Museum of the University of Leipzig and contextualized in a symposium on clarinet making at the beginning of the 19th century.
