In 1722 he was appointed Kapellmeister at Zerbst, a post he held until his death. His works include cantatas, concertos, symphonies and chamber music. None of his pieces were printed in his lifetime, and a large number of his vocal works, including four operas, have been lost.

However, he was held in high regard by his contemporaries (Johann Sebastian Bach made manuscript copies of a number of his pieces), and he is today considered an important link between the Baroque and Classical periods. Fasch died in Zerbst at the age of 70. Johann Friedrich Fasch was the father of Carl Friedrich Christian Fasch, also a musician. Read more on Last.fm.
