Joachim Tielke

We know very little about the German instrument manufacturer Joachim Tielke. A document marking his fiftieth wedding anniversary provided some information, but this was destroyed in World War II.

Born in Königsberg on 14 October 1641, Tielke is known mainly for his viols - more than a hundred of which survive today, but he was also a skilled violin maker, and five of his violins also survive, one of which (dated 1687) is in the Musikmuseet in Stockholm. Tielke died in Hamburg on 19 September 1719.
