Carl Friedrich Zelter (11 December 1758 – 15 May 1832) was a German composer, conductor and teacher of music. Working in his father's bricklaying business, Zelter attained mastership in that profession, and was a musical autodidact. Zelter was born and died in Berlin. He became friendly with Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, and his works include settings of Goethe's poems. During his career, he composed about two hundred lieder, as well as cantatas, a viola concerto (performed as early as 1779) and piano music.

  • Carl Friedrich Zelter (11 December 1758 – 15 May 1832) was a German composer, conductor and teacher of music. Working in his father's bricklaying business, Zelter attained mastership in that profession, and was a musical autodidact. Zelter was born and died in Berlin. He became friendly with Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, and his works include settings of Goethe's poems. During his career, he composed about two hundred lieder, as well as cantatas, a viola concerto (performed as early as 1779) and piano music. Amongst Zelter's pupils (at different times) were Felix Mendelssohn, Fanny Mendelssohn, Giacomo Meyerbeer, Eduard Grell, Otto Nicolai, Johann Friedrich Naue, and Heinrich Dorn. See: List of music students by teacher: T to Z#Carl Friedrich Zelter. Felix Mendelssohn was perhaps Zelter's favorite pupil and Zelter wrote to Goethe boasting of the 12-year old's abilities. Zelter communicated his strong love of the music of J. S. Bach to Mendelssohn, one consequence of which was Mendelssohn's 1829 revival of Bach's St Matthew Passion at the Sing-Akademie under Zelter's auspices. This epochal event sparked a general re-evaluation and revival of Bach's works, which were then largely forgotten and regarded as old-fashioned and beyond resuscitation. Mendelssohn had hoped to succeed Zelter on the latter's death as leader of the Singakademie, but the post went instead to Carl Friedrich Rungenhagen. Zelter was married to Julie Pappritz in 1796, one year after his first wife, Sophie Eleonora Flöricke, née Kappel, had died. Pappritz was a well-known singer at the Berlin Opera. Zelter is buried at the Sophienkirche in Berlin. The violinist Daniel Hope (born 1974) is a direct descendant of Zelter. Zelter was the author of a biography of Carl Friedrich Christian Fasch, first published in 1801 by J.F. Unger in Berlin. (en)

  • Carl Friedrich Zelter (Berlijn, 11 november 1758 – aldaar, 15 mei 1832) was een Duits componist, muziekleraar en dirigent. Zelter was van beroep een metselaar in de firma van zijn vader, totdat hij zich in 1815 geheel aan de muziek ging wijden. Hij was een leerling van Schulz en Fasch. Zelf gaf hij les aan: * Johann Carl Gottfried Loewe * Otto Nicolai * Felix Mendelssohn * Fanny Hensel * Giacomo Meyerbeer Hij volgde Fasch in 1800 op als dirigent van de Berlijnse Singakademie en richtte in 1809 de Berliner Liedertafel op, hetzelfde jaar waarin hij tot professor van de akademie werd benoemd. Een van zijn leerlingen was Felix Mendelssohn voor wiens plannen voor de uitvoering van de Matthäus Passion van Johann Sebastian Bach in 1829 hij eerst niet veel voelde, maar later steunde. Zelf heeft Zelter veel gedaan om de belangstelling voor de muziek van Bach te doen herleven. Hij is in zijn geboortestad overleden. (nl)
  • Fu dal 1800 direttore della Singakademie, che portò a grande fama specialmente con l'esecuzione di opere bachiane.Con Felix Mendelssohn suo allievo, predispose nel 1827 la riesumazione della Passione secondo Matteo. Amico di Goethe, con il quale tenne un fitto epistolario, fu tra le figure più rappresentative della vita musicale della prima epoca romantica e uno degli spiriti più colti del tempo. Compositore modesto nelle forme complesse, fra cui un Concerto per viola e piccola orchestra e molta musica sacra, è considerato, invece, uno dei migliori rappresentanti della scuola berlinese nella produzione di Lieder, di cui molti su testi di Goethe.
