This volume contains various contributions to Gustavian studies, both interdisciplinary and intuitive in approach. The first section contains articles surrounding the modern premiere of Joseph Martin Kraus's "Turkish" opera "Soliman II" in 1989. The articles show different perspectives as seen from each of the participants and gives unusual and penetrating insight into the artistic problems inherent in the revival of the 200-year-old work. The second section is more generalized and more scholarly, with contributions from the research of musicologists, dance historians, and literary historians. The third section is devoted to a brief aesthetical perspective of Gern Schonfelder on cognitive intuition, which delineates the perceptive qualities of music.
