Johann Wenzel Kalliwoda (Prague 1801 - Karlsruhe 1866)  was a violinist; he wrote several pieces for viola and other string instruments. Kalliwoda was highly regarded in his lifetime. He travelled extensively throughout Europe as a violin virtuoso, and as conductor (he was Kapellmeister to the court of Donaueschingen from 1822 until shortly before his death) he directed soloists such as Liszt, Schumann and Clara Wieck. He was considered promising as a composer, and Weber stated in 1816: «Kalliwoda hat ein entschiedenes Talent zur Instrume'ntalkomposition». Schumann and Mendelsohn also praised him. However, the «routinierte Vielschreiberei» for which he was later critisized (243 opus numbers, 44 compositions without opus number, and 170 unpublished works) probably contributed to his gradual decline into obscurity from about 1850. These nocturnes for viola op.186 certainly represents his better works, and as such has become a part of every violist's repertory.
