Christian Ludwig Boxberg (1670-1729) is one of the “lost” generation of composers between the two “poles” of German Baroque music, Schütz and Bach, who were produced in such great numbers in Baroque-era Central Germany. His opera Sardanapalus (1698) is a remarkable synthesis of various European national styles; alongside the German influences, those from French and Italian opera are unmistakable, marking the beginning of that “mixed taste” compositional style that J. J. Quantz designated, decades later, as typical of German masters Telemann, Bach, Händel and Graun.
