Heinrich Christian Gräbner (Bach’s Pupil)

Born: 1705 (?) - Dresden, Saxony, Germany
Died: January 1769 (buried: January 5, 1769) - Dresden, Saxony, Germany

Christian Heinrich Grabner was a German organist. He studied with J.S. Bach in Leipzig in 1725-1726. In 1733 he applied unsuccessfully for the post of organist at the Sophienkirche, Dresden (the appointment went to J.S. Bach's eldest son, Wilhelm Friedemann Bach). He assisted his father Johann Heinrich Gräbner (c1665-1739), who was organist at the Frauenkirche, Dresden, and in 1739 he succeeded him there. From 1742 he was organist at the Kreuzkirche.
