Summary/Abstract: The study deals with the pioneership of the earliest Czech kapellmeisters in the rich musical tradition of contemporary Bulgaria. A specific regional model is brought forth structurally based on the known and less known records by contemporaries and the earliest chroniclers with the focus put on the constructive work of the pioneering kapellmeisters in Ruse as well as on renowned Czech musicians and teachers at the Prague Conservatory, who laid their Czech basis for the development of professional musical culture in Ruse, and for the Bulgarian musical culture, respectively. The figure of Kapellmeister Franz Stross (1851–1917) with his career of almost two decades and a half as an organiser, performer and teacher is central. He and his student Alexander Yorgandjiev had a creative contribution to Ruse’s musical history. Finding new information and rethinking the already known facts shed light on important pages of the development of our musical history.
