Life Data
died on:
Note According to Öztuna, Küçük Mehmed Ağa was the son of Kemânî Hızır Ağa. Since the latter died after 1789 (not, as Öztuna writes, in ca. 1760), Mehmed Ağa probably died later than 1800. (Türk mûsikîsi akademik klasik Türk san'at mûsikîsi'nin ansiklopedik..., TMAS/I, p. 345; ibid/II, p. 33)
However, he is not mentioned by Hızır İlyas Ağa, whose account of palace life covers the period 1812–30. Mehmed Ağa therefore presumably died before 1812. See (Leṭāʾif-i veḳāʾi-yi enderūnīye, LVE)
