Josef Myslyveček

Mysliveček, who enjoyed great successes in the theatres of  Napels, Rome, Venice, Florence and Bologna is primarily an opera composer. Still, he also wrote instrumental music, among which possibly this Cassation. Mozart performed Mysliveček’s piano sonatas in 1777 and reported to his father, that they are quite pleasing to the ear and very effective, when played with the proper precision..
Mysliveček’s precise role in music for winds is undetermined. Three octets have been published in 1962. They originate from the Fürstenberg collection in Donaueschingen and have become standard repertoire. However, their source, a collection of various anonymous octets, is doubtful and the attribution to Myliveček is certainly not an original one. Although this Cassation presents some vague resemblances, it easily could be considered spurious as well. Still the music of this Cassation is very worth being performed.
