Contents Stylus phantasticus and stylus hyporchematicus : concepts of instrumental music in late seventeenth-century Central and East-Central Europe -- Johann Heinrich Schmeltzer (c.1620/23-1680) and music at the Viennese court -- The chapel of Prince-Bishop Carl Liechtenstein-Castelcorn -- Biber and Muffat at Salzburg -- The dissemination and dissolution of the stylus phantasticus.
Summary Based on primary sources, many of which have never been published or examined in detail, this book examines the music of the late seventeenth-century composers, Biber, Schmeltzer and Muffat, and the compositions preserved in the extensive Moravian archives in Kromeriz. Charles E. Brewer sets these composers and their music within a framework that first examines the basic Baroque concepts of instrumental style, and then provides a context for the specific works.
