Friedrich Fesca was just as Spohr a thorough and successful violinist. Because of an illness, he was, however, almost unable to play after his thirtieth. Especially Carl Maria von Weber was very happy with Fesca’s quartet work: “Mr Fesca holds absolute sway on all what he wishes to express. Mozart and Haydn were his examples, as is fitting for the true artist and where every progress in art is testimony of: by an incentive from outside, that generate sparks and doesn’t give them for free.” At the same time he concludes that Fesca’s music doesn’t grab hold of you and suddenly let you dangle over a ravine. Nevertheless, many home musician found Fesca’s modulations too modern in the year 1820… The string quartets in D (opus 12) and in D (opus 34) give a good idea of Fesca’s refined and ingenious way of composing.
