JOHANN CASPAR FERDINAND FISCHER  

(1656 - 1746)

Fischer has importance as an early link between the French style of Lully and that of composers in Germany. He spent much of his life as Court Kapellmeister to the Margraves of Baden.

Instrumental Music

Fischer’s published compositions include a number of suites, the first set for instrumental ensemble and later sets for keyboard. His Ariadne musica neo-organoedum, a set of 20 fugues for organ, clearly had an influence on Bach, as, in other respects, did his music on Handel; to both composers he is an important precursor. His Musicalischer Parnassus is a set of nine keyboard suites, each bearing the name of one of the Muses, and the Musicalisches Blumen-Büschlein includes eight keyboard suites.
