Antonio Rosetti (1750 - 1792)
Born Franz Rösler in Bohemia, Rosetti took an Italian form of name that has led to confusion with others similarly named. He served as Kapellmeister at Wallerstein and later to the Duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin. His final appointment was to the court in Berlin. He enjoyed an international reputation, particularly as a composer for wind instruments.
Orchestral and Chamber Music
Rosetti wrote symphonies, concertos and varied chamber music that includes works for wind band, all in the developing style of the period.
