Notes on Drechsler’s Mor di Nelson

Joseph Drech­sler was born in Bohemia in 1782 and died in Vien­na in 1852. He was a per­son­al friend of Beethoven, as we know from ref­er­ences in the Beethoven Con­ver­sa­tion Books. He first stud­ied the­ol­o­gy in Prague but as a stu­dent was already com­pos­ing large church works.

His suc­cess in com­pos­ing and con­duct­ing in the the­ater led to his becom­ing Kapellmeis­ter in Baden, Bratisla­va and final­ly for the great St. Stefan’s Cathe­dral in Vien­na. Through­out his career he was an active teacher and had pub­lished a trea­tise on har­mo­ny in 1816.
