Johann Pfeiffer was born in Nuremberg in 1697. He studied both violin and law. In 1720 he joined the Weimar Court Ensemble where he became Kapellmeister in 1726. Eventually he became Kapellmeister to Bayreuth in 1734 and the composition teacher of the future Margravine Wilhelmine. He remained in Bayreuth as a highly regarded composer and musician until his death in 1761.
The manuscript for this violin concerto is taken from a copy found in Dresden and was composed in 1726. It is in three movements.
