German flautist and composer. The earliest known reference to him occurs in a list of the musicians at the Margrave of Baden's court in Rastatt in 1706. In Düsseldorf [...] he served as flautist to the Palatine electors Johann Wilhelm and (from 1716) Carl Philipp. He later moved with the court to Heidelberg (1718) and to Mannheim (1720). [...] He composed a set of six Sonate a flauto traversiere solo e basso, op.1 (Paris, 1741-42).
