Music by Franz Anton Hoffmeister

Born: 12th May 1754

Died: 9th February 1812

Birthplace: Rottenburg am Neckar, Germany

Franz Anton Hoffmeister was a German composer and music publisher. Hoffmeister’s publishing activities reached a peak in 1791, but thereafter he appeared to have devoted more time to composition. Most of his operas were composed and staged during the early 1790s and this, combined with an apparent lack of business sense, led to his noticeable decline as a publisher.
