Description:
Johann Heinrich Buttstett (1666-1727) was born in Bindersleben.In 1691 Buttstett succeeded Nicolaus Vetter at the Predigerkirche; he remained there until his death 36 years later. In 1716 Buttstett published "Ut, mi, sol, re, fa, la, tota musica et harmonia aeterna", a work directed against Johann Mattheson's first major treatise. Buttstett was somewhat acclaimed as a teacher during his years at the Predigerkirche, surrounding himself with a circle of pupils. The most important composer to receive musical training from him was Johann Gottfried Walther.
Buttstett's surviving consists exclusively of keyboard music, which he apparently composed in great numbers. In the only surviving collection, "Musicalische Clavier-Kunst und Vorraths-Kammer" of 1713. Particularly interesting are the Prelude & Capriccio in D minor of the Musicalische Clavier-Kunst and the fugue in g minor (ex Reincken). It features a very long and an extreme example of a repercussion subject.
