The paper discusses an artistic cooperation between Vienesse composer of classical era Carl Ditters von Dittersdorf, connected with Silesia for at least a quarter of age due to his duty at the court of Philipp Gotthard von Schaffgotsch, the bishop of Wrocław in his estate in Javornik and two Silesian monastic centres in Nysa and Bílá Voda. At the bishop’s court there was a person of great significance, Salvatore Ignatio Pinto, Jesuit and local confessor, the author of many librettos to Dittersdorf’s early operas and oratorios (eg. Esther and Hiob). The local aristocracy (Hoditz and Chorinsky) also kept their own musicians who collaborated with church and monastic areas of that region. The Piarists in Bílá Voda were focused on theatrical and musical activity, mainly in their monastic school. It is known that Dittersdorf had close contacts with the local regens chori — father Antonin Brossman (p. Damaso a San Ignatio), who not only influenced Dittersdorf’s church music style, but also raised lot of famous composers as Wenzel Müller. There is no source proving Dittersdorf’s contacts with the closter of the Order of the Holy Sepulchre in Nysa. However, the preserved musical collection shows a huge range of the repertoire of Javornik’s court director. Moreover, probably thanks to the Dittersdorf acquaintance with Nysa’s regens chori Ignaz Pohl and prior Jacob Martini, lot of his pieces were copied, among which contrafacta of operatic and oratorio arias must be highlighted.
