Johann Krieger

Johann Krieger (28 December 1651 – 18 July 1735) was a German composer and organist, younger brother of Johann Philipp Krieger. He was one of the most important keyboard composers of his day, highly esteemed by, among others, George Frideric Handel. After spending several decades in central Germany, Krieger moved to Zittau, where he spent some 53 years, working as organist of the Church of St. John. He was a prolific composer of church and secular music, and published several dozens of his works. However, much of his work was lost when Zittau was destroyed by fire in 1757, during the Seven Years' War.
