Janice (Jan) Stockigt is a Principal Fellow of the University of Melbourne. For many years her work has been concerned with the music of Jan Dismas Zelenka and the musicians of the Dresden court during the years of the Saxon-Polish Union. In recent times her attention has turned to the establishment by August II of a Catholic chapel in Leipzig’s PleiÃŸenburg fortress in 1710, the construction of its organ between 1719-20, and the succession of young Bohemians organists who came to serve in this royal chapel. Her research interests include: Catholic court music, early orchestral music, German baroque music, performance practice, Czech Music.
