The Dresden Hofkapelle began its rise to prominence in 1709. Three years earlier Augustus the Strong had temporarily had to renounce the Polish crown as a result of Swedish pressure in the Great Northern War. Not until 1709 did he regain possession of the crown after the occupying Swedish armies had been obliged to withdraw from Saxony. His reacquisition of his royal title was reflected in the regeneration of life at the Dresden court, leading in turn to an ambitious reorganization of the Hofkapelle. Its individual members had been recruited from all over Europe and were all outstanding musicians, but it was their exceptional orchestral discipline that allowed the Hofkapelle to develop into an altogether unique ensemble.
The Saxon State and University Library in Dresden houses an extensive collection of instrumental works from the first half of the 18th century, most of them in manuscript form. Known as the Schrank II Collection after the place where they used to be lodged, they reflect the Hofkapelle’s repertory during Dresden’s Augustan Age. Most of the contents of Schrank II – a total of 1,750 manuscripts and a number of printed editions – derive from Pisendel’s private library, which following his death was acquired by the Saxon court.
