Johann Ludwig Krebs occupies a key position in J. S. Bach’s circle of students. As one of Bach’s most gifted elevens, Krebs was already regarded during his lifetime as an extraordinary composer and organist with virtuoso skills. When studying his extensive organ work, one senses his great organistic abilities, which are expressed in a virtuoso finger and pedal technique. In the field of composition, we encounter Krebs as an artist who has mastered the contrapuntal rules perfectly. In addition to the perfect imitation of his teacher Bach, Krebs had also turned to the new gallant and sensitive tendencies of his time. He was thus very open to the new musical currents emerging in his time, which play a special role in his compositions.
