Josefina DUŠKOVÁ

(*6.3.1754, Prague - ✝8.1.1824, Prague)

Czech singer - soprano

Also known as Josepha Duschek, born Hambacher.

She studied singing, piano and composition with František Xaver Dušek (1731-1799) and married him in 1776. In 1777, the married couple met with Mozart in Salzburg. Mozart was later their guest in Bertram where they lived in Prague. Mozart composed the aria Bella mia fiamma, addio for Josefina in 1787 during his visit of Bertramka.

Although Josefina Dušková was a concert and choir singer, she played an important role in the promotion of the operas by Mozart and Naumann. She emerged with her coloratura art and with her famous dramatic interpretation.
