The keyboard virtuoso and composer, Johann Gottfried Müthel, is believed to have been J.S. Bach’s last student. He became Bach’s pupil only three months before his mentor’s death.
Müthel is believed to have notated several of Bach’s final works, including parts of the Orgelbüchlein. He may even have been present at Bach’s deathbed.
Later, Müthel studied and corresponded with other well-known composers, including C.P.E. Bach. His surviving compositions are numerous, most of which are for keyboard. Surely, Bach would have been proud!
