Perger-Verzeichnis


Perger-Verzeichnis

The Perger-Verzeichnis is a thematic-chronological catalogue of instrumental compositions by Michael Haydn, compiled by Lothar Perger in 1907. Like Ludwig von Köchel's catalog of Mozart's compositions (the Köchel-Verzeichnis), Perger's catalog uses a single range of numbers, from 1 to 136, but like Hoboken's catalog of Joseph Haydn's music, groups the pieces first into categories (symphonies, concertos, etc.) and then sorts them chronologically.

Perger's attempt at figuring out the chronology is, however, so full of mistakes that later musicologists, instead of trying to amend the catalog (as they have with Köchel's) have created new ones from scratch. The most credible is the one by Charles Sherman and T. Donley Thomas, a chronological catalog of 838 pieces in which each piece is assigned an MH number in that range according to their best guesses at chronology.

Even so, Perger's catalog is still widely used by libraries, music publishing houses and some record companies.

"Although this work (Perger 45 [46 is meant here] ) is derived from a separate larger composition, as a are the six symphonies described above [No.s 8, 12, 15, 16, 17, 20] , its form and its proportions call its authenticity into question. The Seitenstetten symphony opens with a substantial movement in sonata style followed by three short numbers. Two of these are minuets with trio—a combination of movements that occurs in no other symphony by Haydn. So curious a sequence of movements appears all the more dubious in as much as "Die Wahrheit der Natur" contains a true finale, which most likely Haydn would have maintained for its character and its length had he himself compiled this symphony. The Seitenstetten work, therefore, is omitted from the list of authentic symphonies."]

Duo Sonatas

Hieronymus Graf von Colloredo commissioned Haydn to write six duos for violin and viola. Haydn fell ill after completing the fourth, so he asked Mozart to write the other two (K. 423 and K. 424). The set of six was presented as all Haydn's, and Colloredo was unable to "detect in them Mozart's obvious workmanship." [John N. Burk, "Mozart and His Music". New York: Random House (1959): 140]
