Schubaur, Johann Lukas

Schubaur, Johann Lukas, German physician and composer; b. Lechfeld (baptized), Dec. 23, 1749; d. Munich, Nov. 15, 1815. He was the son of the painter Ignatius Schubaur. He was orphaned quite young and then reared in the Zwiefalten monastery. After attending school in Augsburg, he studied at the Neuburg an der Donau theological seminary, where he received a thorough grounding in music. He then went to Vienna and studied music while earning his livelihood by giving piano lessons and composing short pieces; took his medical degree in Ingolstadt, and then began his practice at the Barmherzige Brüder hospital in Neuburg an der Donau in 1775; shortly thereafter, he settled in Munich, where he became court physician and president of the medical commission. A dilettante composer, he won notable success with only one score, his Sing-spiel Die Dorfdeputierten (Munich, May 8, 1783). His other Singspiels, all produced in Munich, were Melide oder Der Schiffer (Sept. 24, 1782), Das Lustlager (1784), and Die treuen Köhler (Sept. 29, 1786).

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
