JOHANN WENZEL KALLIWODA  

(1801 - 1866)

Born and trained in Prague, the Bohemian violinist and composer Kalliwoda spent much of his life in the service of the ruling prince in Donaueschingen. He enjoyed contemporary distinction as a performer, conductor and composer, being particularly prolific in the last of these callings. His later compositions pleased audiences of his time, but often lack profundity.

Kalliwoda wrote seven symphonies and a number of overtures. His concertos include a useful addition to an exiguous repertoire in his Variations and Rondo for bassoon.
