The Controversy over the true musical achievements of Andrea Luchesi
A huge new controversy has hit the musical world like a whirlwind.
New evidence shows that little known Italian composer Andrea Luchesi, Kapellmeister of Bonn (between 1771 and 1794), was a secret alcoholic, wife beater, forger, and generally one of the biggest dick-head composers of the late 18th Century.
I would like to ask other Members if this marvellous Forum whether they aware of this amazing controversy. Yes, it’s the major talking point across the musical salons of Europe. Forum after Forum is anxious for information on this devastating news. I may not be able to spend much more time with you.
Luchesi fans are up in arms and are astonished at new evidence that suggests that all or most of the music associated with the maestro was in all probability composed by the hitherto unknown student Bert Uri Moxart, known to his fellow students as "Moxy".
Having studied this subject myself, I've found this to be a hugely controversial area of research, and the truth has been suppressed by supporters of Luchesi. This evidence is based on painstaking analysis of surviving archive material, including manuscripts now at various libraries in Central North Korea and Iran. Members of this forum can, if they wish, ask me for further information and I will do my utmost to help answer all your questions.
The thesis is that the musical achievements of Luchesi are entirely fake, he being totally untrained in anything beyond first-year recorder, which he pinched from school. He was also a drunk and in constant need of drying-out. To exist he required a constant supply of works in order to sustain his reputation and to meet his onerous obligations as Kapellmeister. These facts have been concealed by the Luchesi establishment for years. Because of his job-for-life status, and the strict rules enforced by the Grand European Union of Kapellmeisters, he was unsackable.The amount of skulduggery is scandalous.
The said works were supplied by the brilliant Bonn student, Bert Uri Mozart. He was a fellow student of Ludwig van Beethoven and rumour is that the two got on very well. Unfortunately, Beethoven’s personal notebook for this period has gone missing, so we have no actual record of the acquaintanceship. But this is a mere technicality as it is exceptionally unlikely that LvB would not have known about Moxy or have been unimpressed with Moxy’s brilliance. We have some evidence, too, that Moxy could possibly have been the true composer of some early works attributed to Lvb. This most sensitive aspect is likely to be highly sensational once I have completed some further watermark analysis.
Now Bert Uri Moxart ("Moxy") was no slouch when it came to contracts. He was adamant at the outset that he would only compose for Luchesi on the basis of a licence that lasted for 5 years, after which all such works would return to its original rightful owner. As might expected, this factor in the dealings gave rise to some hair-raisingly complex transactions , and hence is a source of a big muddle in the paper work, but due to my clinically accurate analysis I am now able to reveal all.
The amount of fakery is a sight to be seen. The public image of Luchesi is about to be smashed. I can show Luchesi the con-man , the wife beater, the man who was utterly dependent on alcohol, and the drying out clinics run by the Jesuit Order. Yes, the Jesuits are involved too.
Unfortunately, records of “Moxy’s” compositions are somewhat limited after 1791, as we have reason to believe he may have a had a nasty skiing accident. This aspect is still under very active research but we are currently having trouble in accessing the records, which the North Korean authorities are reluctant to release until the USA stops threatening to nuke them.
That these issues are based on documentary and other evidence is not in doubt. There are only one or two minor gaps in the evidence. The story is full of intrigue. The details I am now able to release - of late night drinking sessions, rollicking slap and tickle sessions, wife-beatings, gross composing deception - will provide true shock and awe. I am prepared to divulge further details if any members of this forum would be prepared to consider the case for such a viewpoint but know in advance that such things may be unacceptable to others. However, I assure you that these facts are sound and the entire musical world is talking about it.
I would like to issue a challenge to the Luchesi Establishment to come out and defend their fake hero.
Any nervous types among you are warned about the horrific things I am now able to reveal, which are hugely controversial.
