About

There is little documentation about this now lesser-known, but once esteemed composer. Born in Coburg in 1735, Anton Schweitzer died in 1787 in Gotha, where he had settled following the Weimar Palace fire in 1774. Regrettably, relatively few of his manuscripts have survived. Some of the works recorded here (which comprise almost his entire existing church music) were preserved in several copies found recently in various archives in Thuringia. This recording presents colourful virtuoso music by an unjustly forgotten composer.
