Joseph Friebert - Das Serail (Passavia, 1779)

 

Don Juan Archiv Wien holds the only known copy of the musical score of Das Serail – Eine Teutsche Operette (‘The Seraglio – A German Operetta’) by “Giuseppe Friebert” (Joseph Friebert, 1725-1799; from 1763 to 1795 music director of the prince-bishop of Passau’s court). This manuscript, stemming from eighteenth-century Passau (Passavia, Bavaria), dated “1779” and including the vocal (“Zaide”, “Gomaz” and “Renegat”) and instrumental parts, only came to light in 2005 and is therefore mostly uninvestigated.
Friebert set to music Das Serail oder Die unvermuthete Zusammenkunft in der Sclaverey zwischen Vater, Tochter und Sohn (‘The Seraglio or The Unexpected Encounter of Father, Daughter and Son in Slavery’; the only known copy of the complete text was printed in Bozen, 1779), attributed to Franz Joseph Sebastiani (1722-1772 or later), a theater impresario. In turn, the text served as model for Johann Andreas Schachtner (1731-1795) and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s unfinished Singspiel Zaide (Das Serail) KV 344 (1780).

The aim of this research project is to reconstruct the provenance of the manuscript and the performing history and to prepare an edition of the score.
