This chapter provides a list, as complete as possible, of Antonio Casimir Cartellieri’s works with their respective locations.
The performance dates of his works have been included to show their possible dates of origin. The lack of complete records and the limited sources of information about concerts restrict this list to a mere outline of the works’ popularity. However, this compilation proves that Cartellieri was highly respected as a composer. Moreover, many music references books, such as “Memorandum on the occasion of the centennial existence of the Tonkünstler-Societät1”, or encyclopedias, dictionaries and handbooks of his days in Vienna and Prague contain little information about Cartellieri's compositions. Cartellieri himself didn’t provide any information regarding his compositions but the first list of his works is included in the Report on the life of his father Anton Casimir Cartellieri (16 December 1826)2 by his eldest son Joseph Cartellieri (1803-1870) to the secretary of the Gesellschaft fur Musikfreunde (see Appendix A). Joseph Cartellieri was at the young age of about four when his father died, so he did not witness the events, nor did he learn about them directly from his father whom he hardly remembered. Joseph did not live in Vienna, but in Bohemia, and was at the service of the Lobkowitz family. Moreover, it couldn’t be his father’s patron, the 7th Prince Joseph Franz Maximilliam Lobkowitz (1772–1816), who provided him with the information, as he died when Joseph was only about twelve and ten years before the compilation of Antonio Cartellieri’s biography. Thus, we can expect to find errors and discrepancies in this source. For example, Joseph’s list contains one concerto for horn, two double concertos for oboe and bassoon, one concerto for double flute and one concerto for Oboe, Horn, and Bassoon. I was unable to locate any of these scores. Another work not cited on the list is the bassoon concerto, which we know was performed on the 30th of March 1795 by the bassoonist Matouscheck3. It is possible that all of his unknown works are placed somewhere waiting to be discovered again.
