Dotzauer was a German cellist, teacher, and composer. "Combining great musicianship with a technique advanced beyond contemporary standards, Dotzauer's work represented a milestone in the development of cello performance. His teaching ability and didactic publications resulted in the so-called ‘Dresden School’ of playing, which influenced such pupils as F.A. Kummer, C. Drechsler, C. Schuberth and his own son Karl Ludwig, and through them Grützmacher, Cossmann, J. Goltermann and their pupils. Although many of Dotzauer's 178 or so compositions were quickly forgotten, others have been revived and welcomed as the subject of recordings. The pedagogical works remain important teaching material, and extracts have frequently appeared in later composers' collections of exercises and studies." E. Van Der Straeten and Lynda MacGregor in Grove Music Online. Item #26973
