Title: Franz Paul Rigler a jeho tvorba pre klávesové nástroje
Author: Andrej Čepec

Abstract: Franz Paul Rigler and His Music for Keyboard Instruments
By his compositional work Franz Paul Rigler contributed to the shape of music and genesis of Classicistic musical language of the 2nd half of the 18th century in Slovakia. In his compositions elements of stylistic tendencies of early and high Classicism mingle, as well as innovative and traditional compositional procedures. His piano style refers first of all to his affinity with Viennese and Austrian composers. Piano pieces, namely rondos and sonatas point to performing and compositional mastery which earned him a remarkable response of the society of the time. Representative music genres are characterized by individual approach to the form, fully accommodated to technical possibilities of keyboard instruments. By the usage of fermatas F. P. Rigler left a certain amount of freedom to the performers of his pieces. Piano rondos are based on Couperin rondo, characteristic by its combination with compositional principles of variation. Rigler’s sonata form is based on Scarlattian sonata with its binary form concept, with the first section as exposition and the second one as development with recapitulation (directly related to the beginning of development). Rigler’s compositional legacy may be considered highly contributive to the crystallization of the music culture of the whole Europe.
