Formatted Abstract/Summary
The Bohemian cellist and composer Joseph B. Zyka was the founder of an impressive musical dynasty in Berlin, where the Hofkapelle employed him and his seven sons, all string players. He also wrote cello concertos, cello sonatas, and trios. His cello duets are generally technically less demanding than those of his younger contemporary Luigi Boccherini, but can perhaps stand beside those in terms of interest for the player and charm for the listener.

Der aus Böhmen stammende Cellist und Komponist Joseph B. Zyka war der Begründer einer eindrucksvollen Musikerdynastie in Berlin, wo er und seine sieben Söhne – alles Streicher – in der Hofkapelle angestellt waren. Von ihm sind auch Cello-Konzerte, Cello-Sonaten und Trios überliefert. Seine Cello-Duette sind im allgemeinen weniger anspruchsvoll als die seines jüngeren Zeitgenossen Luigi Boccherini, aber sie sind genauso interessant für den Spieler und genauso reizvoll für den Zuhörer.
