Haydn's Copyist Peter Rampl

GÜNTER THOMAS

The third masked ball of the Viennese Fine Artists' Pension Association ( director Anton Maulbertsch) was held on 23 November 1794, in the Redoutensäle of the Vienna Hofburg, by gracious permission of His Majesty Emperor Franz II. According to the records kept by the association's secretary, the painter Leopold Binder, twelve minuets and twelve German dances by Philipp Ditters von Dittersdorf were played in the large ballroom and twelve minuets and thirteen German dances by Joseph Eybler in the small, all of them 'quite new and supplied gratis for the love of the fellowship of art'. The costs for 'transcribing the Dittersdorf minuets and German dances for the clavier, in order to be able to wait upon Her Majesty the Empress [ Maria Theresia, the emperor's second wife] with them', together with the 'remuneration for the whole orchestra in the small ballroom, for performing the very demanding Eybler minuets and German dances', were met by the association's vice-director, the architect Lorenz Kohl. As usual, the orchestra of the large ballroom played under Johann Patatschny, and that of the small under Anton Höllmayr.1

This essay is concerned with the 'Notten-Conto' submitted by one Peter Rampl, which was deposited (as Beylage Lit. I.) with the other invoices arising from that ball in the Wiener Stadt- und Landesarchiv (see Pl. 2).2
