Joseph Ignaz Leitgeb
Joseph Leutgeb (Joseph Ignaz Leitgeb, in the salzburgischen dialect mentioned of Mozart also as “the Leitgeb”, in the membership list of the Haydn Societät in Vienna is not hewith Joseph Leutgeb listed; Ignaz is invented!) (not to confound with the Mozarts' temporary manager Anton Leutgeb, which supported its widow also when regenerating the deduction) first first bugler was in the chapel of the prince archbishop of Salzburg 1764-73.
Ten years later he took over again a firm employment than bugler with the prince Grassalkovich.
Its horn concerts KV 417.447 and 495 and the Hornquintett KVLeutgeb wrote 407 Mozart for its paternal friend of many years. Although this was substantially older than Mozart, both had very ungezwungenes relationship to each other, then Mozart overwrote the concert KV 417 for Leitgeb with remarks, it „over the Leitgeb donkeys, Ochs and fool had pitiedto Vienna, the 27. May 1783 “.
Traces by such fun are to be found also in other autographs. In the received fragments of the concert KV 495 are written the notes in blue, red, greener and black ink, which fun was however at the same time reasonable, markedMozart thereby much purifies shades in the dynamic gradation. In the concert set (KV 514) D major is the part of the soloist continual with humorigen remarks the Mozarts beleitet: „Adagio - A lei Signor Asino, Animo - presto - CSU via - there bravo - Corraggio - bestia -o che stonatura - Ahi! - ohime - bravo povretto - „and at the conclusion: „grazia aluminium Ciel! basta, basta! “. Betrays also here Mozart in its fun, which he quite itself the problems of aging with Leutgeb and his thereby limited of working consciouslywas. Into the 1791 developed composition he e.g. does without. on very high tones.
The fact that Mozart again and again wrote virtuose works for Leitgeb, are voucher for the fact that this was a completely protruding bugler. However is occupied also in the literature, which we likewise thatObstinacy Leutgebs these concerts owe, which asked Mozart again and again for new works for horn.
