When their father, the hugely famous Johann Stamitz, died at the age of 39, Carl and Anton were only eleven and six. Johann's colleagues immediately stepped in to support his family and ensured that the boys received a properly musical education. They set out on their careers as violinists, but would they be able to emulate their father's fame and fortune?
