Karl Hartwig (Bach's Pupil)

Born: August 18, 1709 - Olbernhau, about 30 km south-east of Chemnitz in Erzgebirge, Saxony, Germany
Died: August 5, 1750 - Zittau, Saxony, Germany

Karl Hasrtwig was a German organist. In 1729 he applied unsuccessfully for the post of organist at the Nikolaikirche in Leipzig, and in 1733 for that of organist at the Sophienkirche in Dresden, where Wilhelm Friedemann Bach was appointed. He took private lessons from J.S. Bach in Leipzig betweeen 1732 and 1735, and was then appointed organist at the Johanniskirche in Zittau, where he was preferred to another of J.S. Bach's pupils, Johann Ludwig Krebs. In 1741 he acted as agent at Zittau for J.S. Bach's newly published Clavier-Übbung III.
