Torrent description

Kozeluch [Kotzeluch, Koželuh], Leopold [Jan Antonín, Ioannes Antonius]
(b Velvary, 26 June 1747; d Vienna, 7 May 1818).
Bohemian composer, pianist, music teacher and publisher. He was baptized Jan Antonín, but began (not later than 1773) to use the name Leopold to differentiate himself from his older cousin of that name. He received his basic music education in Velvary and then studied music in Prague with his cousin, who probably gave him a thorough grounding in counterpoint and vocal writing, and with F.X. Dušek, whose piano and composition school prepared him mainly for writing symphonies and piano sonatas. After the success of his first ballets and pantomimes (performed in Prague, 1771–8), Kozeluch abandoned his law studies for a career as a musician. In 1778 he went to Vienna, where he quickly made a reputation as an excellent pianist, teacher and composer. By 1781 he was so well established there that he could refuse an offer to succeed Mozart as court organist to the Archbishop of Salzburg. By 1784 Kozeluch was publishing his own works; the following year he founded a music publishing house, later managed as the Musikalisches magazin by his brother Antonín Tomáš Kozeluch (1752–1805). His compositions were also published almost simultaneously by a number of other houses in various countries. Kozeluch's business contacts with English publishers, particularly John Bland, Robert Birchall, and Lewis, Houston & Hyde, are well documented by correspondence. In September 1791 he achieved success in high circles with a cantata commissioned by the Bohemian Estates for the Prague coronation of Leopold II as King of Bohemia. After the accession of Emperor Franz II he was appointed (12 June 1792) Kammer Kapellmeister and Hofmusik Compositor. From about 1804 Kozeluch's original work as a composer took second place to his arrangements of Scottish, Irish and Welsh folksongs for the Edinburgh publisher George Thomson, to teaching, and to the activities connected with his court appointment, which he held until his death. His daughter Catharina Cibbini (1785–1858) was a well-known pianist and composer of piano music during the early 19th century in Vienna.

Kozeluch was one of the foremost representatives of Czech music in 18th-century Vienna. His influence as a pianist and piano teacher was such that early contemporary accounts praised him for helping in the development of an idiomatic piano style and for discouraging the use of the harpsichord in favour of the piano. As a composer he devoted himself almost exclusively to secular music (his sacred compositions are mostly arrangements of secular works). His chief interest lay in piano music – sonatas, piano trios and concertos – but he wrote almost as much symphonic and vocal music; he also composed for the stage, though most of his ballets and all but one of his operas are lost, making his achievement difficult to assess.

Kozeluch's output falls into three main stylistic (though not chronological) divisions: except for the oratorio Moisè in Egitto the galant style of the Viennese Rococo characterizes the greater part of his vocal output of the 1780s, particularly the songs and ariettas; his piano concertos and symphonies use the normal expressive language of the Viennese Classical style at that period, and a number of piano and chamber works of the 1780s and 1790s even presage the Romantic lyricism of Schubert. Elements of Beethoven's tragic-pathetic style and (more rarely) his lyricism are most evident in works of about 1785–97 (like the piano sonatas pXII:17, 20, 27, 34, 37, and the piano trios pIX:11, 15, 33), and can also be discerned in works from the first decade of the 19th century (e.g. pXII:38–40). Romantic expression is foreshadowed in the chamber works and piano music of 1785–91 (e.g. pXII:26, 28 and pVIII:3) and above all in the Trois caprices for piano (pXIII:3–5, about 1797) and the piano trios using Scottish and Irish melodies (pIX:40–45, 52–4, 1798–1803). The caprices, with their novel sonorities, colourful harmony and unusual form, represent an early stage of the single-movement lyrical piano piece; the other works hint at Schubert and Weber in some stylistic traits and in the character of their melodic inspiration.
