Prof. Klaus Pietschmann

Klaus Pietschmann is professor of musicology at JGU and president of the Répertoire International des Sources Musicales in Frankfurt. His research ranges chronologically from the Middle Ages to the 20th century combining musicological with transdisciplinary cultural-historical approaches. Over the last 15 years, he has significantly contributed to the implementation of Digital Humanities in the field of musicology by developing innovative database solutions as well as one of the first hybrid editions in musicology. As a GRC fellow, he will focus in particular on the reciprocal relationship between music and sacral architecture in the early modern period and the further development of authority file-based source and repertoire research in the context of digital musicology.
