Johannes Matthias Sperger was born in Feldsberg (Lower Austria, now Valtice, Czech Republic) in 1750. He received his training as a double bass player from 1767, presumably from FA Pichelberger in Vienna, where he is said to have performed for the first time with his own compositions at the age of 18. The performance of a symphony and a double bass concert at the Vienna Tonkünstler-Societät on December 20, 1778, of which he became a member in 1779, is guaranteed. From 1777 he worked in the court chapel of the Archbishop of Pressburg (Bratislava). It cannot be proven with certainty whether Sperger worked as a double bass player under Joseph Haydn in Eisenstadt near Vienna. From 1783 to 1786 Sperger was a member of the court orchestra of Count Ludwig von Erdődy in Kohfidisch. From 1786 to 1789 he went on concert tours and tried to find a permanent position, among others at the Prussian court. At the beginning of April 1788 he played Duke Friedrich Franz I in Ludwigslust. After a trip to Italy, Sperger found his employment decree in April 1789 and began his service as the first double bass player in the Mecklenburg-Schwerin court orchestra in Ludwigslust in June 1789. In 1792 he went on a concert tour to Lübeck, in 1793 to Berlin and 1801 to Leipzig, where he gave concerts with the Gewandhaus Orchestra. In 1812 he died of nervous fever in Ludwigslust, where Mozart's Requiem was performed on the occasion of Sperger's death. In 1792 he went on a concert tour to Lübeck, in 1793 to Berlin and 1801 to Leipzig, where he gave concerts with the Gewandhaus Orchestra. In 1812 he died of nervous fever in Ludwigslust, where Mozart's Requiem was performed on the occasion of Sperger's death. In 1792 he went on a concert tour to Lübeck, in 1793 to Berlin and 1801 to Leipzig, where he gave concerts with the Gewandhaus Orchestra. In 1812 he died of nervous fever in Ludwigslust, where Mozart's Requiem was performed on the occasion of Sperger's death.

Johannes Matthias Sperger wrote numerous symphonies, instrumental concerts (concerto for viola, concerto for violoncello, 18 double bass concerts, two concertos for trumpet, three concertos for horn, one sinfonia concertante), sonatas, rondos, dances, cantatas, choirs and arias. His harmony music for wind instruments, known as “Feldpartien”, mostly comes from his time in Bratislava.

According to current knowledge, several chamber music works for the flute, mostly with a double bass, a flute duet, a charming, previously unpublished flute concerto and the present trio (terzetto) for flute, violin and cello have come down to us.
