Johann Peter Pixis
He lived in Paris between 1825 and 1845, where he worked as a concert pianist. In 1845 he moved to Baden-Baden, where he taught piano until his death.
Among his many musical works, he was involved with the composition in 1837 of Hexaméron (six composers contributed, and the third variation on Bellini's theme is by Pixis). An earlier collaborative work, from 1819–1823 (this time involving 51 composers) was Vaterländischer Künstlerverein, an anthology of variations on a waltz by Anton Diabelli, which also included Ludwig van Beethoven's Diabelli Variations.
