Notes & Reviews:

Jan Antonin Kozeluch was born in Velvary, Bohemia (now the Czech Republic) on 26th June 1747 but adopted the name "Leopold" to distinguish himself from his cousin, the Kapellmeister in Prague. Kozeluch studied law while studying music privately with his cousin and with Frantisek Dusek (1731 - 1799). From 1771, Kozeluch began composing music for ballet and even pantomimes, which were particularly successful. He moved to Vienna to further his career as a pianist, teacher and composer (both sacred and secular). In 1792, at the peak of his career, Kozeluch accepted the appointment of Imperial Chamber Conductor and Court Composer. While fulfilling his duties to the Court, Kozeluch experimented with genre and form, even arranging Welsh, Irish and Scottish folk songs. Kozeluch was highly regarded for his role in the development and promotion of the piano. Since his death in Vienna on 7th May 1818, this achievement has been overshadowed by those of Ludwig van Beethoven.
