Adonis by Johann Sigismund Kusser( )

9 editions published between 2009 and 2019 in German and Undetermined and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rediscovered in 2005, the manuscript performance materials for Adonis can be explicitly linked to a series of dramatic entertainments produced at the Württemberg court in Stuttgart between 1698-1702, under the musical direction of Johann Sigismund Kusser (1660-1727) ... The Adonis manuscripts are of tremendous importance for the study of historical performance practice, since as a full set of instrumental parts for early German-language opera they appear to be unique. Scored for a five-part oboe band, four-part string ensemble, and continuo, the individual parts--which are labelled with the original instrumentalists' names--feature frequent performance annotations (including many in Kusser's hand), making this edition of broad appeal to both scholars and performers alike." --

"Johann Sigismund Kusser (or, as he was known in England and Ireland, John Sigismond Cousser), was a Hungarian-born musician who, after a varied and successful career in the German-speaking lands of the Holy Roman Empire, settled in Ireland in July 1707. In Dublin Kusser composed and directed the performances of at least twenty-one festive serenatas that marked important state occasions in Dublin between 1709 and his death in late 1727. Presented before the elite of local society in semistaged productions featuring costumes, stage machinery, and dancing, these works functioned as something of an operatic substitute in the city's cultural life. The contents of the present volume comprise the three serenatas for which music remains extant. Two of these can be proven definitively to be of Kusser's own composition, and the third, due to its musical style, overall structure, and subject matter, is almost certainly his creation as well. These works provide remarkably rare musical evidence of a key component of the artistic offerings of Dublin's viceregal court during the early decades of the eighteenth century."--
