Today the classical style is defined by the music of a handful of composers, Haydn and Mozart being the most prominent. As a result, the accomplishments of these masters have all but eclipsed the music of most of their contemporaries. In this book, Sterling Murray examines one of the most talented of this group, Antonio Rosetti. Born around 1750 and trained in Bohemia, Rosetti spent most of his creative life in Germany, where he served as music director to the Prince of Oettingen-Wallerstein between 1773 and 1789 and then the Duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin until his death in 1792. The Career of an Eighteenth-Century Kapellmeister offers the first comprehensive study of Rosetti's life. The events of the composer's biography are unfolded against a vivid picture of musical life at the two small German courts where Rosetti was employed. The second half of the book is devoted to an examination of form and style in Rosetti's music, illustrated with full-score musical examples in the text and on a complementary website. What emerges from this investigation is a portrait of a composer who, having conquered the stylistic language of his day, challenged those conventions to produce imaginative and highly creative works of great beauty. Sterling E. Murray is professor emeritus of the School of Music at West Chester University in West Chester, Pennsylvania.

Review:

An important book (that) portrays, for the first time in a book-length study, the life and creative output of . . . one of the important and innovative composers of his era (the late eighteenth century). Can be recommended to anyone interested in music of the Classic era. ZEITSCHRIFT DES HISTORISCHEN VEREINS FUER SCHWABEN Provides many perceptive comments on music that he clearly knows very well. Admirable is his discussion of Rosetti's handling of sonata and concerto form. Will definitely become the reference point for all future work on the composer. MUSIC & LETTERS (Vassilis Vavoulis) The Career of an Eighteenth-Century Kapellmeister is the first in-depth study of Antonio Rosetti, one of the most significant and internationally known composers of the Classical Period. Sterling Murray brings focus not only to a talented and reputable composer but also to the social situation of musicians of this period. This book is a crucial piece to the complex puzzle that is called the classical period and should be a model for further studies on equally versatile and progressive composers. --Bertil van Boer, author of the Historical Dictionary of Music of the Classical Period
