Ernst Wilhelm Wolf - born 1735, Kapellmeister in Weimar, Thuringia. Wolf is another who has managed to slip History’s moorings so it’s pleasant to encounter him in the guise of symphonist especially as he’s known – if at all – as a Singspiel and piano composer. He heard Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach
and Johann Adolf Hasse
, married Franz Benda
’s daughter, Karoline, was appointed to his distinguished position in Weimar under Duchess Anna Amalia, suffered a stroke in his late fifties and died in 1792.
