Overview and metadata sections
Born in the Lubomirski Palace in Poland in 1803, Johann Vesque von Püttlingen was an Austrian lawyer, diplomat, author, composer and singer.
His father, Jean Vesque de Puttelange, was a state official in Brussels, Belgium who was forced to flee during a French invasion of the low countries in 1793. By around 1801, Vesque de Puttelange worked as the librarian and tutor to Prince Alexander Lubomirsky's daughter. Johann Vesque von Püttlingen was born during this employment. In 1804, the ban on Austro-Belgian officials settling in Vienna was lifted and the family subsequently moved there.
Vesque von Püttlingen entered the University of Vienna in 1822 to study law. He then became a civil servant in the Lower Austrian legal service and rose to chief administrative officer of Salzburg by 1872. He later moved to the diplomatic service where he was head of section in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and was elevated to the barony in 1866. He was considered to be one of Austria's leading lawyers and was a notable writer about law.
Vesque von Püttlingen first took piano lessons with Maximilian Josef Leidesdorf at age 13. He subsequently studied composition with Eduard von Lannoy and had singing lessons with Johann Vogl. In 1828, Vesque von Püttlingen began publishing music compositions under the name J. Hoven. In total, he published over 330 lieder, six operas, and around 20 quartets. Four of his six operas were produced at the Kärntnertortheater.
He died in Vienna in 1883.
