Author Topic: The Princes of Prussia as composers  (Read 71 times)
« on: February 02, 2018, 05:31:16 pm »

Recently I found three interesting handwritten (and partly autograph) manuscripts of compositions by Prince Albert (son) of Prussia (1837-1906) and his son, Prince Joachim Albert of Prussia (1876-1939). For all three compositions no scores are available and so I decided to typeset them. The scores are now available for free download from my website:

Prince Albert (son) of Prussia: Siegeshymnus (Victory hymn), for military band (1866)

Prince Joachim Albert of Prussia: Tango 1926, for small orchestra & A la plus belle, Valse-Boston, for small orchestra (1927)

Please check it out if you are interested in royal music...

Composing monarchs were already a grand old tradition in Prussia by then.

Friedrich II (24 January 1712 17 August 1786) was an accomplished flautist and composer. His court patronised composers including CPE Bach, Quantz, Graun, and the Bendas.

He wrote many sonatas and concertos for the flute, and performed them himself, with the orchestra at Sans Souci (his private palace over Potsdam)
