(1705 - 1772)

The cantor, organist and composer Johann Peter Kellner was born at Gräfenroda, where he was a chorister. He studied with the cantor Johann Peter Nagel and was taught the organ by the latter’s son, whom he succeeded as cantor in 1732. He enjoyed a considerable reputation as an organist.

Organ Music

Kellner’s organ music reflects the interests of the generation after J.S. Bach, of whose music he made copies, thus providing interesting source material for methods of contemporary performance.
