More than thirty years have passed since Günther Hellwig, my father, published his book "Joachim Tielke. Ein Hamburger Lauten- und Violenmacher der Barockzeit" (Frankfurt/Main 1980). My wife and I completed a new edition, or better. a completely new publication in =ctober 2011.
You may want to look at our website on Joachim Tielke and the new book at www.tielke-hamburg.de. There you will find information on Tielke's vita, on his instruments and also of course, on our publication.
