The aim of the paper is to present a biography of relatively unknown composer – Johann Valentin Meder. The title of this article indicates the composer’s penchant for changing places of living, which makes him unique among other baroque composers. He spent most of his life in three European cities: Reval (currently Tallinn), Gdańsk, and Riga. Born in Wasungen (Germany), he visited: Leipzig, Jena, Gotha, Copenhagen, Rotenburg, Kassel, Brema, Hamburg, Lübeck, Mitau, Kaliningrad (Königsberg), and Braunsberg. The lack of any sources in Polish deems this project worthy of scholarly investigation.
