Jiri Antonin Benda

Jiri Antonin Benda (Jirí Antonín Benda, Georg Anton Benda) (1722-1795) - a Czech classical composer.
W.A.Mozart wrote on 12th November, 1778, to his father L. Mozart: "I saw such a piece twice here with the greatest pleasure! Really - nothing ever surprised me more! What I saw was Medea by Benda; he also composed another one, Ariadne auf Naxos, both thoroughly excellent; you know that among the Lutheran Kapellmeister Benda always was my favourite; I like those two works so much that I carry them along with me"
