Abstract [en]

In the second half of the 18th century German musicians began to direct interest towards the emerging middle class. Here they found an audience seeking to validate their social status through the acquisition of cultural capital, and hence an audience with an interest in music. Musicians began to produce collections of songs and chamber music for this audience, as well as journals and magazines with musical content. Along with cultural capital, the music also provided the middle class with a cultural identity. This was particularly pertinent as the German lands at that time were fragmented into countless disparate pieces, and culture was dictated by absolutist rulers influenced by the French and Italians. These musicians sought to create a new community with their music, and provide an emotional expression for that community. One musician with a keen interest in this audience was the Prussian court Kapellmeister Johann Friedrich Reichardt (1752–1814). This article studies how Reichardt, through song collections like Wiegenlieder für gute deutsche Mütter and Lieder für die Jugend, not only provided his middle class audience with a cultural identity but actively sought to shape that identity.
