FRANTIŠEK ANTONÍN VÁCLAV MÍČA
(*5.9.1694 Třebíč, +15.2.1733 Jaroměřice)
Bohemian composer and conductor
Acted as conductor and composer for the music-loving Count Questenberk in Jaroměřice. He conducted opera performances, he composed opera inserts, congratulation canatatas, seplocras, and other occasional musical compositions. The most paramount of his composing activities was, however, the opera O původu Jaroměřic (About the Origins of Jaroměřice), preserved with both Italian and Czech text. The formal presentations of Míča's opera symphonies are of a remarkable quality and are similar to anti-classical sonata types emerging at that time (Symphony in D major).
