Leipzig: A. Kühnel [PNs 471, 479, 480], 1806. First Edition. New Grove Music Online. RISM CC2028 I,232. Not in Hirsch, Hoboken, MGG, or BUC.Faniska, to a libretto by J. von Sonnleithner after R.C.G. de Pixérécourt, was first performed at the Kärntnertor in Vienna on February 25, 1806. "The score reflects Cherubini's technical development, notably in the trimmed links between vocal and orchestral parts, the increased variety of vocal and instrumental forms (including a canon) and the search for a Polish tone." Beethoven owned a copy of the score.An Italian, composer, conductor, teacher, administrator, theorist, and music publisher active in France, Cherubini was "a dominant figure in Parisian musical life for half a century. He was a successful opera composer during the Revolutionary period, and had comparable success with religious music from the beginning of the Restoration. He was made director of the Paris Conservatoire and consolidated its pre-eminent position in music education in Europe." Michael Fend in Grove Music Online.. Oblong folio.
