Slightly worn and soiled. First Edition. Rare. "In 1819 Lindpaintner took up the post of Kapellmeister at Stuttgart, where he remained for the rest of his life. Here he established his reputation as one of the finest German conductors and continued to compose assiduously for the stage. A number of his operas were enthusiastically received... [He] also enjoyed a reputation as a composer of lieder, sacred music and instrumental works. His songs, particularly Die Fahenwacht and Roland, were widely popular; among his sacred music, which included cantatas, masses and psalms, the oratorio Der Jüngling von Nain held a high place. His concertos and concertinos were notably successful, especially the two concertante symphonies for five wind instruments and orchestra. Lindpaintner's mastery of instrumentation was widely acknowledged, and his reorchestration of Handel's Judas Maccabeus was seen as one of his finest works." Clive Brown in Grove Music Online.
