FRANTISEK XAVER POKORNY  

(1728 - 1794)

A pupil of Johann Stamitz and of Holzbauer in Mannheim, the Czech composer Pokorny served at Wallerstein until 1766, when he was appointed to the musical establishment of Thurn und Taxis at Regensburg. Due to the existence of several other musicians with the same name, there has been some confusion about the large quantity of symphonies and concertos thought to be his work.

Orchestral Music

Some 100 symphonies, 50 harpsichord concertos and a variety of other works have been attributed to Pokorny. Following the common style of the period, he wrote four-movement symphonies, scored for the conventional orchestra of the time. Three concertos for two horns are thought to be his.
