Hoffmeister Franz Anton

Franz Anton Hoffmeister (1754-1812) was a German composer and highly regarded music publisher. Initially he studied law in Vienna but switched to music and quickly became one of the most popular composers in 1780s. By 1785 he established one of the most successful publishing businesses in Vienna and gained reputation as a publisher of W.A.Mozart, J. Haydn and L.V.Beethoven and many others, many of whom become his personal friends.

At the turn of the century he decided to devote more time to composition and touring which eventually led him to Leipzig. There he established another publishing house Bureau de Musique which made the first edition of J.S.Bach's keyboard works in 14 volumes. In the following years he sold both publishing houses and dedicated his time solely to composition. As a composer he wrote more than 25 concertos for flute, over 50 symphonies as well as numerous chamber music works.
