a German composer, violin and viola d'amore player, principally now known for his string quartets. 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 from working.
