Rosetti, Francesco Antonio

Born around 1750 and a contemporary of Mozart and Haydn, Francesco Antonio Rosetti was born in Northern Bohemia as Franz Anton Rösler. He led the orchestras of Austrian and German aristocrats. In 1781 he spent months in Paris, where his works were published and performed. The majority of his music comprises symphonies, concertos and vocal works. Rosetti’s horn concertos quite possibly served as models for Mozart’s four horn concertos.
