Johann Christoph Baumgarten (Bach’s Pupil)

Born: August 1687 (baptised: August 30, 1687) - Wallis, near Ohrdruf, Thuringia, Germany
Died: May 27, 1722 - Eisenberg, Saxony, Germany

Johann Christoph Baumgarten was a German organist. He attended the lyceum in Ohrdruf from 1697 to 1703 (Bach was also there during part of that time) and studied music with Johann Christoph Bach [22]) and, possibly in 1708, with J.S. Bach at Weimar. In 1721 he was appointed organist at Schkalen, near Eisenberg, about 40 km east of Weimar, and in 1727 at Eisenberg itself.
