Biography

Gottfried Heinrich Stölzel (31 January 1690 in Grünstädtel – 27 November 1749 in Gotha) was a prolific German composer.

He studied at Leipzig University from 1707 to 1710, where he joined the Collegium Musicum, which had been headed by Telemann before Stölzel’s arrival at the University. For the next ten years he travelled widely, studying, teaching and composing in Breslau, Halle, Venice (where he met Antonio Vivaldi), Rome, Florence, Prague, Bayreuth, and Gera, and refusing several offers of permanent employment. In 1719 he married and the following year he was appointed Kapellmeister at Gotha (Saxe-Gotha), where he remained for the rest of his life. In 1739 he joined the Lorenz Christoph Mizler’s Correspondirenden Societät der Musicalischen Wissenschaften, of which J.S. Bach was later a member.
