Professor of University Libraries
Skinner Music Library
Stephen Luttmann joined the UNC faculty in 1999, having previously been Assistant Music Librarian at the University of Houston. He has advanced degrees in Music Librarianship (MLS, Indiana University, 1996), Music History (MA, University of Louisville, 1989) and Germanic Studies (MA, Indiana University, 1991), and has pursued additional studies in the latter two areas. In addition to his duties as Music Librarian, Professor Luttmann teaches "Introduction to Doctoral Research" each fall semester, as well as occasional undergraduate courses in German literature.
Professor Luttmann has presented conference papers on Paul Hindemith's Harmonie der Welt, Central European music between the World Wars, and various issues concerning music librarianship. Publications include articles on such topics as music library acquisitions, Johann Schenck's viola da gamba music and the text transfer between Jean Genet's novel Querelle de Brest and Rainer Werner Fassbinder's film Querelle. Essays on Katherine Hoover, Ruth Schonthal, and Joan Tower appear in Women and Music in America since 1900: An Encyclopedia (Oryx Press 2002). His editorial collaboration with the Munich publisher Jürgen Höflich has resulted in the rediscovery and reprinting of dozens of scores by such composers as Anton Arensky, Friedrich Gernsheim, Josef Matthias Hauer, Albéric Magnard, and Bernhard Sekles. The second edition of his Paul Hindemith: A Research and Information Guide, was published by Routledge in 2009.
Professor Luttmann's current scholarly interests include twentieth-century music, especially in Central Europe; music criticism and aesthetics; bibliographic instruction; and German language instruction for music students
