Siegismund Freudenberg (Bach’s Pupil)

Born: April 1704 (baptised: April 20, 1704) - Seifershau, Riesengebirge (today Poland)
Died: ?

Siegismund Freudenberg was a German organist. He studied with Tobias Volckmar (1678-1756) at Hirschberg and privately with J.S. Bach while reading law at the University of Leipzig between 1724 and 1728, but he was unsuccessful in his attempts to find employment as an organist in Schweidnitz (1728) and Görlitz (1730). In April 1731 he competed, again unsuccessfully, with Johann Adolph Scheibe and Theodor Christian Gerlach (1694-1768) for the post of organist at Freiberg Cathedral.
