Stamitz, Carl

▪ German composer
in full  Carl Philipp Stamitz 
baptized May 8, 1745, Mannheim, Palatinate [Germany]
died Nov. 9, 1801, Jena, Saxony [Germany]

      German composer of the last generation of Mannheim symphonists.

      Stamitz was the son of Johann Stamitz, the founder of the Mannheim school. He played violin in the court orchestra at Mannheim in 1762 and was also a viola and viola d'amore player there, before leaving for Paris in 1770. He spent several years in Paris (with his brother Anton, also a violinist and composer), then toured widely as a virtuoso after 1777, spending time in England and The Hague, where on one occasion he shared the stage with then 12-year-old Beethoven. In 1794 he became conductor of the orchestra at Jena; even with this position and despite his continued activity as a composer, he was unable to pay off his debts before his death. As a composer, he was the most productive of the Stamitz family; he wrote a large number of instrumental works, including symphonies; concerti and concertante works; and quartets, trios, and sonatas.
