“…Death has wrenched you from me. / What a treasure have I lost! / What excellence has died with you!” – From an ode by Telemann honouring Pisendel on his death, 1755

Pisendel is perhaps the least recognised of our networkers. He was, however, one of the most famous violinists in Germany: a member of the renowned Dresden Court Orchestra for 43 years (27 as concertmaster), boasting close friendships with Vivaldi, Telemann and Albinoni. Pisendel collected enormous quantities of manuscripts from other European courts during his Grand Tours accompanying the Crown Prince, which significantly increased his Court’s performance repertoire and helped to create Dresden’s reputation as one of the most important musical centres in Europe.
