German composer, violin virtuoso and conductor. Works belong to the style of early romanticism.
Composed symphonies, eperas, oratorios, but the best known for his corcertos: the largest number for his instrument – violin.
Enriched clarinet literature with his four concertos for clarinet, well known being those in C minor and F minor, written for Johann Simon Hermstedt, a clarinet player.
Composed also Potpourri for Clarinet and Orchestra.
