During the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, musicians' mobilities and migrations led to widespread cultural exchange of music. Adopting viewpoints that reflect different methodological approaches and research cultures, this book presents studies on the scope, strategies, and artistic outcomes of mobile and migratory musicians as well as on the transfer of music. By looking at elite and non-elite musicians and their everyday mobilities to major and minor centers of music production and practice, new biographical patterns and new stylistic paradigms in Eastern, Western, and Southern Europe emerge.
