Sonata-Fantasie, Opus 4
Russian composer of German birth. He is best remembered by historians for his
keyboard contest for Joseph II of Austria against Wolfgang Amadé Mozart
(1756-1791) and Antonio Salieri, which Hässler lost. The fact of this
competition indicates that he was held in high esteem and considered a worthy
competitor in German musical circles.
