Biography

Titz was born in Nuremberg, initially training as a painter before concentrating on music and becoming the organist at St. Sebaldus Church. He lived in St Petersburg for 40 years, working at the court of Catherine II of Russia.

He composed lieder, sonatas, string quartets and symphonies. Some works from his time in St Petersburg have been lost.

He began to suffer from mental illness in 1805 which prevented him working.

Recordings

Recordings of his work have been rare, but since 2004 several discs of his chamber music have been released.
