The Neumeyer-Junghanns-Tracey Collection of Historical Keyboard Instruments represents the developments in keyboard craftsmanship for four centuries. The instruments weren’t collected for the pleasure of collecting decorative artwork and the wish to save and retain valuable milestones of the craft, but it was virtually born out of the very interest of the musician Fritz Neumeyer to reconstruct the sound of the past. By studying the Instrument Collection in Berlin, that was supervised by Curt Sachs, Fritz Neumeyer discovered, that if music from past centuries is played on today’s instruments, it sounds completely different. Historical instruments sound completely different, and the way they are played is also very different. With this insight, the young maestro more than 70 years ago decided to start his own collection of historical instruments, making it possible to perform music from the 16th to the 19th century with their original sound characteristics. With his expertise and quite probably a bit of luck, an impressive number of the valuable original instruments could be acquired. Most of the instruments were restored by the master piano craftsman Rudolf Dobernecker, who cared for the collection until his death in 1991. He was succeeded by Christoph Kern, a piano maker and specialist for historical keyboard instruments from the town of Staufen. For the interpretation of the music that originated between 1550 and 1850, the specific keyboard instrument was needed, but not all of these instruments were available. Therefore the collection was completed by adding replicas that stayed very close to the original instruments, like the replicas of the Virginal and the Doublevirginal.
The present collection is somewhat different from most public collections, because of its rather private distinction. That may even be true today, even though, as a legacy of the last owner, the Neumeyer student Rolf Junganns, the collection was transferred into a public foundation in 1993. Music historian Prof. Dr. Hannsdieter Wohlfahrt was the chairman of this foundation. He stepped down in 2007 out of health reasons. Professor Wohlfahrt died December 2015. Since 2007, a newly formed board of experts chaired by Bernhard Grotz manages the foundation. Assessor Prof. Gerhard Gnann and Assessor and CEO of the Schloßkonzerte GmbH (Schlosskonzerte Ltd.) Susanne Berkemer, are also on the board. The curatorship is chaired by Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Hermann Frommhold, who is also the Chairman of the Society of the Friends of the Schloßkonzerte Bad Krozingen. Vice Chairman is Bad Krozingen’s Mayor Volker Kieber. Members of the board are Prof. Dr. Christian Berger, Head of the Musicology Seminar of the University of Freiburg, Dr. Hans-Peter Bestehorn (former Vice Director of the Heart Center Bad Krozingen and now an instrument maker), Dr. Martin Kirnbauer (an instrument maker and musicologist in Basel), Rüdiger Nolte (the Principal of the Music Academy in Freiburg), as well as Dr. Markus Zepf (a musicologist at the Badisches Landesmuseum in Karlsruhe). The board is supported by Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Stopfel and Dr. Lotte Thaler of the SWR in Baden-Baden (Southwest Radio and Television Broadcasting Network). The official Curator to the Collection is Christoph Kern, who is also in charge of servicing and restoration of the instruments. The Schloßkonzerte GmbH (Schlosskonzerte Limited) is managed by CEO Susanne Berkemer M.A., who is also responsible for the concerts and guided tours through the instrument collection. The artistic director is appointed each year. In 2015 Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Brunner, a professor at the Mozarteum in Salzburg (Austria) held this position. For 2016 Dr. Lotte Thaler, who is in charge of the classical music programming of the national radio station SWR2, was appointed. After Rolf Junghanns‘ death in 1993 Sally Fortino (Basel) was the Artistic Director - with Annemarie Dobernecker as CEO until 1999. In 2006 Mrs. Fortino stepped down from her office by her own request.

Chairman of the Board of the Gesellschaft der Freunde der Schloßkonzerte Bad Krozingen e.V. is Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Hermann Frommhold. The late Minister of Baden- Württemberg, Prof. Dr. Helmut Engler, was an Honorary Chairman. Fritz Neumeyer was born on the 2 nd  of July 1900 in Saarbruecken. After completing his studies of music in Cologne and Berlin he was Musical Director and Director of the Choir at the City’s Theater in Saarbruecken (1924 – 1927). Ever since 1928 he got more and more interested in historical instruments and the performance of early music. As founder of the Saarbruecker Vereinigung für Alte Musik (Saarbruecken Association for Early Music) and later on as a member of the Kammermusikkreis Scheck-Wenzinger, he decisively contributed to the renaissance of authentic historical sound reproduction. From 1939 to 1944 he was a teacher at the Musikhochschule Berlin (Berlin Music Academy) and from 1946 to 1968 he was a Professor at the Musikhochschule Freiburg im Breisgau (Freiburg Music Academy). Countless concert tours with the Cappella Coloniensis and other chamber music associations took him around the globe. Radio broadcasts and a large number of records made him known as one of the most renowned interpreters of older music. As a composer he liked to write vocal music accompanied by instruments and a great number of vocal arrangements, especially on folk songs from the Lorraine. Fritz Neumeyer died on the 16th of January 1983. Rolf Junghanns was born on the 19 th  of August 1945 in Gotha in Thuringia. He was a student of Fritz Neumeyer at the Freiburg Music Academy, studying historical keyboard instruments and basso continuo. From 1970 to 1992 he taught these subjects at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, the school and research institute for old music in Basel, Switzerland. As a well known specialist for performances on historical instruments, he produced a large number of records, was often heard on the radio, and he gave a large number of concerts and toured the world. His contributions were essential to maintaining and completing the Fritz- Neumeyer-Collection. He died in the year 1993. Bradford Tracey was born on the 7 th  of July 1951 in Sydney, Nova Scotia, Canada. He studied musical sciences in Toronto for some time before coming to Europe to play on historical keyboard instruments. He studied at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, where he studied with Rolf Junghanns and later with Fritz Neumeyer. Apart from his work at the Schloss in Bad Krozingen, he toured through Europe and North America and made several recordings. In 1979 he was appointed Professor for Historical Keyboard Instruments and Performances at the Musikhochschule der Kuenste in Berlin (Berlin University of the Arts). In 1986 he and Rolf Junghanns initiated the Friedenauer Kammer- konzerte (Friedenau Chamber Concerts) in Berlin. Bradford Tracey passed away in 1987. All three founders found their last resting places at the Cemetery in Bad Krozingen. The City of Bad Krozingen tends to them as honorary gravesites.
