Ludwig Maurer (Composer)

Born: 2nd February 1789, Potsdam, Germany

Died: 25th October 1878, Saint Petersburg, Russia

Nationality: German

Ludwig Wilhelm Maurer was a German composer, conductor, and violinist born in Potsdam. In 1802, he debuted in Berlin with his first major violin performance. After a brief period of studying French violin style in Mitau (Latvia), Maurer went to Russia at age 17 in 1806, where he would stay for most of his life. For this reason, Maurer is considered both a German and a Russian composer.

Upon his arrival in St. Petersburg, Maurer performed extensively until the French violinist and composer Pierre Baillot aided Maurer in becoming the conductor of the Count Vsevolozhsky's orchestra in Moscow.
