Vejvanovský, Pavel Josef

Vejvanovský, Pavel Josef, distinguished Moravian trumpeter and composer; b. Hukvaldy or Hlucin, c. 1633; d. Kroměříž (buried), Sept. 24, 1693. He was educated at the Opava Jesuit Coll., and entered the service of E. Castelle, an administrator at the court of the Prince-Bishop of Olmötz, Leopold Wilhelm, as a trumpeter in 1661. He then was made principal trumpeter and Kapellmeister to the new Prince-Bishop, Karl Liechtenstein-Kastelkorn, in 1664, and later served as his Hof- und Feldtrompeter. His masterful writing for the trumpet and the cornett is found in both his instrumental and his vocal works. Among his output are 14 masses, offertories, motets, vespers, litanies, antiphons, a number of sonatas in which the trumpet is prominent, balletti, Intrada, and Serenadas. See J. Po-hanska, ed., Pavel Josef Vejvanovsky: Serenate e sonate per orchestra,Musica Antiqua Bohémica, XXXVI (1950), and Pavel Josef Vejvanovský: Composizioni per orchestra,ibid., XLVII-XLIX (1960-61).

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
