August Eberhard Müller
August Eberhard Müller (1767-1817) was pianist, organist and flautist as well as composer and conductor. In addition to being first flute in the Gewandhaus orchestra, he was organist of the Nikolaikirche in Leipzig and later assistant at the Thomaskirche, “greatly esteemed” by Beethoven, and valued by Goethe for his energy when he was in charge of the music in Weimar. He was best known for his propagation of the music of Haydn and Mozart, and for his much-reprinted Klavier- [i.e. clavichord] und Fortepiano Schule (1804).
