Johann Kaspar Ferdinand Fischer (1656-1746) Fischer was born at Schonfeld in Bohemia but details about his life are few. What we know is that his youth was spent in Schlackenwerth north west Bohemia. The first official record of his existence dates from 1695 when he was Kapellmeister to Ludwig Wilhelm of Baden. HE apparently remained with the court until his death in 1746.

Fischer was considered one of the best composers of his day and he was in pretty heady company—his contemporaries were Buxtehude, Bach,Telemann, Handel, Bruhns etc. Fischer had many compositions published in his lifetime but tragically he was little known outside Northern Swabia. Few of his works come down to us today. Due to the rarity of surviving copies of his music it is rarely played or heard. WELL not on my watch! His stuff is so rare when I was searching for his stuff MY OWN previous post on MGTOW.com back in 2017 came up on page 2 of the search. Sadly the version of the Ariadne Musica I posted back then is now gone..and gone for good I could find it nowhere. Which sucks because it was a great performance.

His “Ariadne Musica” was composed between 1702 and 1715 The book has 20 short preludes and fugues in 19 different keys, plus five ricercars based on chorales. Yes I know the clip below is not played on a period instrument—It is played on a Balthasar Koenig Organ which is very French in character. BUT the firm is located in the Alsace so it is just across the river from Baden. His music is more appropriately played on a Silbermann or Reipp instrument but so it goes.

This is nothing compared to the previous post but its all I could find.

Ariadne Musica---preludes and fugues.

Chaconne: (Played on the Silberman of Rotha)

Le Parnasse Musical. Uranie. 1738

This is a Prelude and Fugue in F

Prelude and Fugue in C major

One of the Ricercars

Passacaglia from Urania

I’ve just uploaded your music through my PlayStation network through my tv. Your music will now be my official background music while I’m surfing the forums. I’m starting with the first video.   When people walk in the place where Im at, they’re all gonna feel like they are in church. Well, they practically are 😊 

#Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. (Revelation 3:3)

The way to go, my brother! Same here, often I use The Evil Genius´s music as "my official background music while I´m surfing the forums".

 

This site has been a scam from the start. I am outta here.
