Monn, Georg Matthias
Georg Matthias Monn was an Austrian composer of the Classical era. His works represent a transformation from the Baroque era to the Classical period of music. He introduced the Mannheim galant style to Vienna and enjoyed a high reputation in Austria during his lifetime. Georg Monn performed as a singer at the Klosterneuburg Monastery and then as an organist at Vienna's Karlskirche. In particular, Monn is the first musician to write a four-movement symphony as the third movement, even though many of his symphonies follow the typical Italian three-movement pattern. He has written several concertos that highlight the transition from baroque to classical. Schoenberg arranged his G minor Cello Concerto as well as continuously realized some of his many works.
