Carl Ditters von Dittersdorf

Dittersdorf Carl Ditters von

Carl Ditters von Dittersdorf was an Austrian composer, violinist and silvologist. Ditters' early work laid the groundwork for his later more important compositions. His symphonic and chamber compositions greatly emphasize sensuous Italo-Austrian melody instead of motivic development, which is often entirely lacking even in his best works, quite unlike those of his greater peers Haydn and Mozart.
