Untitled[edit]

I am not sure, whether the family relation of Suppe with Donizetti is really true. It was not only a slander in Vienna because of surprising invitation of (in that time) unknown Suppe to Josephtadter Theather by its director Pokorny ??? However, it is true, that Suppe and Donizetti met in Vienna, becam to be a frends. Donizetti teached Suppe and probably (its is not sure) they went together to Italy.

The family relation is mentioned by the Grove, and at least for me that's good enough. If you can find genealogical records to prove or disprove this, that would be great. If not, oh well. Dmetric 19:40, 21 September 2005 (UTC)

Suppé or Suppè?[edit]

The German Wikipedia has just changed the spelling of his name to "Suppè" (grave accent); see: de:Franz von Suppè & de:Diskussion:Franz von Suppè. I found two online source which also uses this spelling: Operone & MSN Encarta (the English entry there uses "Suppé" (acute accent). Andrew Lamb at Grove Online uses "Suppé", as does the Encyclopædia Britannica and every other Wikipedia.

Should the English Wikipedia follow? I think not — althought the version "Suppè" should be mentioned. Michael Bednarek (talk) 14:04, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

I've been working on the railroad?[edit]

Dichter und Bauer predates the first publication of I've been working on the railroad by about 50 years, and have an identical tune in them. Is it coincidence, or was it borrowed from von Suppe? Aaron Bruce (talk) 17:44, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
