The gambist Thomas Fritzsch, an avowed Abelian and "probably one of the most important gambists in the world today" (Musica Sacra 04 / 2017), has been searching for lost and forgotten works of the gamba literature with passion and brilliant historical knowledge for four decades. After reading an article in Robert Schumann's Neue Zeitschrift für Musik in which the viola da gamba is called a romantic instrument in 1840, Thomas Fritzsch no longer wanted to believe the widespread myth that the viola da gamba missed the 19th century and vice versa. He set out on a search for the lost music of an entire century and found original compositions for viola da gamba from the first half of the 19th century as well as contemporary arrangements, which gambists used to discover the latest compositions by Schumann, Mendelssohn Bartholdy and Liszt. Thomas Fritzsch discovered some of these works in the private music library of the Counts of Maltzan (Militsch / Milicz, Poland). The viola da gamba from 1784, which once belonged to Joachim Carl Graf Maltzan, has been played by Thomas Fritzsch for several years. In the acoustics of one of the most important sacred rooms in Europe - the monastery church Schulpforte - Thomas Fritzsch, Michael Schönheit and the Merseburger Hofmusik on original instruments from the 19th century bring world heritage music to new life.
