Hoffmeister Quartet on period instruments

CD-Production of Deutsches Kulturforum östliches Europa in cooperation with PROFIL-Edition Günter Hänssler (PH09046)

Anton Ferdinand Titz was born in Nuremberg in 1742. As of 1771, he was engaged as a violinist at the imperial orchestra in St. Petersburg and as a chamber musician for Catherina the Great. With his 12 string quartets Titz can rightly be considered the founder of a separate string quartet tradition in Russia.
