Rosetti Francesco Antonio

Francesco Antonio Rosetti (1750-1792) was a German composer (born as Franz Anton Rösler, he changed to Italianate form by 1773)  with a rather successful career.
Originally raised to become a Jesuit priest, he abandoned religious life to pursue music studies in Prague. Throughout his life he served at various courts: including Russian Count Orlow and Kraft Ernst, Prince of Öttingen-Wallerstein, and Duke Franz I of  Mecklenburg-Schwerin. In 1781 he spent 5 months in Paris where he managed to publish many of his compositions, gaining substantial reputation, ranking him with Haydn and Mozart. Overall he composed over 400 works, including 47 symphonies and more than 30 concertos, mostly for horn and other wind instruments. For the most part they were all written for the outstanding wind players of the Wallerstein court chapel.
