In 1748 and 1749 he conducted at Marylebone Gardens. He apparently made no public appearances after 1750. His works included the oratorios "Judith" (1735) and "Joseph" (1746), as well as chamber duets, solo and trio sonatas, concertos and part songs. Both oratorios were thought lost until 1980 when a copy of a manuscript of "Joseph" was found in London's Royal Academy of Music. De Fesch's music was influenced by the Italians, particularly Vivaldi, as well as Handel. Read more on Last.fm.
