The Erinnerungen aus der Jachenau, 6 pie�en f�r die Zither (Remembrances of Jachenau), by Adam Darr, was published by Anton B�hm Verlag of Augsburg between September and October of 1861. It was Darr�s sixth work that he published with B�hm. This work is similar to two previous pieces, that is, it is a compilation of ethnic pieces gathered from the Bavarian Alps. Jachenau is a beautiful Bavarian alpine town that well to do Munichers would visit on vacation. Of interest is that Jachenau is dedicated to Mr. Charles Whitbread, to whom Darr was governor and music teacher. Also important are that three of the songs are given dates. He was their governor during this period and was probably traveling with the family on their vacation. The songs are as follows: 1. Das Echo im Gebirge (21 October 1850) (The Echo in the Mountains), 2. Gemsj�gerlied (Mountaingoat Hunter Song), 3. Auf der Bauernhochzeit (19 Jan. 1851) (At the Farmer Wedding), 4. Der Abschied vom alten M�tterl (22 Febr. 1851) (The Farwell of the Old Mother), 5. & 6. Schnada�pfln (A Bavarian Country Dance).

Zither players ought to be aware that Darr's zither tuning differs from today's modern instrument. For a historically accurate performance, string #10 must be tuned an octave higher, while strings # 17, 19, and 22 must be tuned an octave lower than today�s tuning standard.

In an effort to bring some clarity and brevity to the notation, I have used some guitar designations. The fretboard strings are designated as Arabic numerals inside of a circle and orders from the highest string (a) number 1 to the lowest string © number 5. Harmonics are designated with diamond note heads at pitch, with a string number and fret number. Although this is a departure from past practices, I believe it adds clarity and a certain amount of uniformity with other classical instrument notation.

For more information on Darr see my DMA research paper "ADAM DARR (1811-1866) THE CAREER AND WORKS OF A GERMAN ROMANTIC GUITARIST AND ZITHERIST."
