»Fuxteufelswild«

Outside of the early music scene, works by the then famous court conductor of Charles VI, Johann Joseph Fux, are unfortunately hardly known today. This would have been just fine with the emperor, since Fux served his elitist taste, as it were, ex officio, who delighted in sophisticated counterpoint. However, Fux had in mind how to make use of this »scholarly« style of writing without appearing boring, as the actual learning goal of his composition theory »Gradus ad parnassum«, published in 1725. Generations of musicians used it to work out »The Way to Parnassus« for themselves or others, among them Joseph Haydn, Leopold Mozart and Ludwig van Beethoven, and later Sechter, Mahler, Bruckner and others. In the second part of his portrait series, the young wild harpsichordist Jean Rondeau presents the fruits of this remarkable history of the impact of Fux's elementary work, including highly virtuoso etudes from Muzio Clementi's piano school of the same name.
