OAE musicians talk about the little known composer Myslivecek and his music.
The first time I heard a symphony by Composer M., I felt ecstatic. He actually now is my numero uno favorite composer, followed by W. Mozart and Michael Haydn. What impresses me most about Mr. Myslivecek is his phenomenal use of horns and his string executions that exude their unique Bohemian flavor. He really was his own man with his own style. Very uplifting and even exciting pieces of music from this man.
I’m so grateful that I can listen to his fabulous sounds today, and when I do, I feel like an aristocrat sitting in the king’s court!
