III. The Early Renaissance (1350-1500)

IIIb. From Oswald von Wolkenstein to the Locheimer Liederbuch.

Oswald von Wolkenstein was one of the great epoch-making personalities in the history of German music. He was the artist, who, during his adventurous journeys at the beginning of the 15th century, studied contemporary European and particularly French music, the achievements of which he applied to German music. Within a century German musicians caught up with the rest, and at the beginning of the 16th century the works of the German composers can be called equal to those of their Dutch, Flemish, French and Italian colleagues.
