Carl F. Zimmermann


Recommended Posts

Several topics on this forum include references to Carl F. Zimmermann’s autobiography and the role he played in the development of the autoharp. Rather than add further commentary to the older discussions, I’m starting a new topic for two purposes.


The first is to call attention to a recent translation of his entire autobiography from German to English, here.


The second is to call similar attention to a chronological account of the dates on which pivotal innovations that led to the autoharp can be attested. That account is here and addresses a pervasive misunderstanding of the priority of the contributions made by ZImmermann and other German instrument makers.
