Johann Joseph Fux (Composer)

Born: 1660, Langegg bei Graz, Austria

Died: 13th February 1741, Vienna, Austria

Nationality: Austrian

Johann Joseph Fux was an Austrian composer, music theorist and pedagogue of the late Baroque era. His most enduring work is not a musical composition but his treatise on counterpoint, Gradus ad Parnassum, which has become the single most influential book on the Palestrinian style of Renaissance polyphony.
