Koželuh, Leopold Antonín

Leopold Antonín Kozeluh
Leopold Antonín Koželuh (Kozeluch, Kotzeluch) (1747-1818), born in Bohemia (today Czech Republic), baptized Jan Antonín, but early changing his first name to avoid confusion with an older cousin (one of his teachers).
Spending most of his life as successful musician and composer in the Vienna of Haydn and Mozart, where he was so well established, that he could afford to refuse an offer from the Archbishop of Salzburg to succeed Mozart as organist.
Piano and chamber music is dominating Koželuh’s list of works, but it also includes songs, 22 piano concertos, 11 symphonies, and a Sinfonia concertante for mandolin, trumpet, double bass, piano and orchestra.
