Johann Caspar Ferdinand Fischer (1656 - 1746)

Johann Casper Ferdinand Fischer was born in Germany around 1670, though we shall never be certain when. We find the first record of his existence in the mid-1690's when appointed Hofkapellmeister to the Margrave Ludwig Wilhelm, and it was the brilliance that Fischer brought to music at the court that made him an important musical figure. Obviously a fine harpsichordist, he was responsible for bringing a French influence into German music. There is just one question mark that remains unanswered, and that surrounds the variability of the quality of music which carries his name, leading to the speculation that there may have been two - or even three - generations of Fischers who contributed to the works that carry his name. That has been given further substance by the fact that Fischer would have had to compose for over 60 years to cover the approximate dates of composition, which would have been a long time in the early 18th century.
