Edited by Christian Berger, Konstantin Voigt and Christoph Wolff Since it was founded 100 years ago by the musicologist Willibald Gurlitt, the music department at the University of Freiburg has studied the history of music from the early Middle Ages to the present. The volumes in the series »Freiburger Beiträge zur Musikwissenschaft« (the Freiburg Contributions to Musicology), which have been published under the title Voces since 1995, are dedicated to upholding this tradition. This title refers to the tradition of medieval solmisation, which was taught and used until during the 16th century and represents a key element in understanding medieval sources of music. In this respect, the publications in the series are intended to bring to life the works they focus on through historical and music theory source criticism in tandem with intensive analytical examinations, and in this way make them more understandable for readers today.
Leo Kestenberg – Gesammelte Schriften
Complete edition in 6 volumes
Edited by Wilfried Gruhn with the assistance of Ulrich Mahlert and Dietmar Schenk.
The »Gesammelte Schriften« show Leo Kestenberg’s (1882-1962) importance as a pianist as well as his music pedagogical and cultural-political work. In addition to his main writings, the collection includes essays, correspondence and documents on the reform of the Prussian music system. The main features of Kestenberg’s comprehensive educational policy conception, which formed the basis for the various reform measures to reshape the educational system in the area of public and private music care, are particularly striking.
The volumes in the series intro: Musikwissenschaft highlight fascinating areas in which musicology overlaps with its related disciplines and provide the reader with a clear introductory insight into interdisciplinary questions.

This series will appeal to students of musicology, theatre studies, media studies and cultural studies. Its coherent structure, concise summaries, bibliographical references, plus questions and stimuli for further research and discussion will help the reader to begin studying this subject.
