Georg Friedrich Einicke (Bach’s Pupil)

Born: April 16, 1710 - Hohlstedt, Thuringia, Germany
Died: January 19, 1770 - Nordhausen, Thuringia, Germany

Georg Friedrich Einicke was a German organist and Kantor. He studied at THE University of Leipzig and with J.S. Bach, 1732-1737, and was then Kantor in his native Hohlstedt. In 1746 he was appointed to a similar position in Frankenhausen, and in 1757 became director musices at Nordhausen, where he remained for the rest of his life. In 1749-1750 he was briefly drawn into the controversy between Scheibe and Bidermann regarding the merits of J.S. Bach as a composer, acting as go-between on behalf of J.S. Bach and his supporters.
