Henricus Albicastro (Heinrich Weissenburg)

(fl. 1695/1705 - ca. 1738)

Composer, probably born in Switzerland. He studied at the University of Leiden from 1681; later he apparently served in the Spanish War of Succession. Around 1700 he was in Amsterdam, where Roger published a number of his virtuosic works for strings, including concertos and more than fifty sonatas for violin (some with viola or cello) and continuo. J. J. Quantz mentions (in his autobiography in Marpurg's Historisch-kritische Beiträge) having practiced Albicastro's works as a youth.
