Violinist and composer. From 1751, Deller, who had probably studied in Vienna, took a position in Stuttgart at the court of Duke Carl Eugen of Württemberg. He subsequently became involved with Carl Eugen's recently-established ballet company, from 1760 under the direction of J.-G. Noverre. Deller also wrote several comic operas for Stuttgart but was released from service in 1771, thereafter working briefly at Vienna and Munich before his premature death. Lit.: Oxford Music Online.
