Carl Ditters von Dittersdorf 2 November — 24 October was an Austrian composerviolinist and silvologist. After retiring honorably from his military obligation, he was provided with royal letters of cocnerto and a sinecure with the Imperial Theatre. Inthe six-year-old August Carl was introduced to the violin and his father’s moderate financial position allowed him not only a good general education at a Jesuit school, but private tutelage in music, violin, French and religion.

After leaving his first teacher, Carl studied violin with J. Zieglerwho bythrough his influence, secured his pupil’s appointment as a violinist in the orchestra of the Benedictine church on the Freyung. Prince Joseph of Saxe-Hildburghausen soon noticed young Ditters, and on 1 March hired him for his court orchestra. Under princely auspices he studied violin with Francesco Trani who, impressed with the ability of his pupil in composition, commended him to Giuseppe Bonno who instructed him in Fuxian counterpoint and free composition.

After a few years Prince Joseph disbanded the orchestra, since he had to leave Vienna to assume the regency in Hildburghausenand the Austrian Empress hired Ditterssorf for her own orchestra through Count DurazzoTheatre Director at the Imperial Court. In he was engaged as violinist doyble the Imperial Theatre orchestra, and in its conductor. In he traveled to Bologna with Gluck to see the opera Il trionfo di Clelia: In he traveled to Paris, a trip with only scarce and uncertain documentation.

Back in Vienna inhis contract with Count Durazzo expired that winter, but he met the great Concdrto Haydn and became one of his closest friends.


He accepted the post of Hofkomponist court composer inand it was dtitersdorf his tenure at Johannesberg that most of his creative output baas produced. Over the next xoncerto years he wrote symphonies, string quartets and other chamber music, and opere buffe. Since this new post required a noble title, Ditters was sent to Vienna and given the noble title of von Dittersdorf.

His full surname thus became “Ditters von Dittersdorf”, but he is usually referred to simply as “Dittersdorf”.

Johann Baptist Wanhal was baes Dittersdorf’s most eminent pupil. AboutHaydn, Dittersdorf, Mozart and Wanhal played string quartets together, Dittersdorf taking first violin, Haydn second violin, Dittwrsdorf viola and Wanhal cello. Eminent Irish tenor Michael Kellyfor whom Mozart created the roles of Don Basilio and Don Curzio in his da Ponte opera Le nozze di Figarowas of the opinion that although they played well their performance as a whole was not outstanding; but the image of four ditrersdorf the greatest composers of their time joining in common music-making remains an unforgettable vignette of the Classical era comprising the second half of the eighteenth century.

Inafter twenty-four years at Johannesberg, Dittersdorf, after a serious clash with von Schaffgotsch, was expelled from his palace.

His final decade was occupied with overseeing operatic productions in addition to compiling and editing his own music for publication. He finished his autobiography just three days before his death. Ditters’ early work laid the groundwork for his later more important compositions. His symphonic and chamber compositions greatly emphasize sensuous Italo-Austrian melody instead of motivic development, which is often entirely lacking even in his best works, quite unlike those of his greater peers Haydn and Mozart.

Even with these reservations, Dittersdorf was an important composer of the Classical era. After some early Italian opere buffehe turned to writing German Singspiele instead, with Der Apotheker und der Doktorgenerally known today as Doktor und Apotheker in particular being a tremendous success in his lifetime, playing in houses all over Europe and recorded almost two centuries later.

Among his or-so symphonies are twelve programmatic ones based on Ovid ‘s Metamorphosesalthough only six have survived and have also been recorded. He also wrote oratorioscantatas and concertos among which are two for double bass and one for violastring quartets and other chamber musicpiano pieces and other miscellaneous works.


Some of his compositions, including the double bass concerto, were published in Leipzig by the Friedrich Hofmeister Musikverlag. Dittersdorf left about symphonies with solid attribution. There are about another 90 symphonies which may be Dittersdorf’s work—according to the catalogue published by Helen Geyer, Torino Most of the symphonies are preserved only in manuscripts.
