Johann Nepomuk Stadler
Johann Nepomuk Stadler (born May 6, 1755 in Bruck an der Leitha , † May 2, 1804 in Vienna ) was an Austrian clarinetist and basset horn player and the younger brother of the clarinetist Anton Stadler .
Like his better-known brother Anton, Johann Nepomuk began as a musician for the Russian ambassador in Vienna, Dmitri Michailowitsch Golitsyn (1721–1793). In February 1782 Joseph II issued a decree so that the brothers would become members of the orchestra of the Vienna Burgtheater , in order to prevent the two from leaving Vienna. Johann Nepomuk played the first clarinet and his brother the second. In 1801 Ludwig van Beethoven wrote the score of the basset horn in the ballet The Creatures of Prometheus (op. 43) explicitly for Johann Nepomuk Stadler.
