Music by Cornelius Heinrich Dretzel

Born: 1697

Died: 7th 五月 1755

Birthplace: Nuremberg, Germany

Cornelius Heinrich Dretzel was a German organist and composer. He was born in Nuremberg, where he appears to have spent his whole life in various organists' posts. He may have studied with J.S. Bach in Weimar (1716–1717), and his compositions reveal points of contact with Bach. They include a concerto for harpsichord solo, perhaps modelled on the Italian Concerto; this solo concerto was once thought to be by Bach; an early version of the slow movement was entered in the first edition of Schmieder's catalog as BWV897:1.
