by Joachim Walter
The author found primary-source evidence of German Romantic music performance techniques that contradict earlier conclusions, especially regarding dynamics and registration practices. Transcriptions of Beethoven and Mozart works as written out by Hermann Jimmerthal (1809-1866), organist at the giant 1854 Schulze organ in St. Mary�s, L�beck (organ destroyed in WWII), employ unexpected, kaleidoscopic, registration practices continued by Jimmerthal�s successor, Karl Lichtwark. 241 pages
