Nicolaus Bruhns was born in Advent of 1665, in Schwabstedt, Germany. He studied organ and composition with Dieterich Buxtehude, who considered him to be among the very best of his students. According to Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, Johann Sebastian greatly admired Bruhns' work. With the assistance of Buxtehude, Bruhns secured a post as violinist and composer at the court in Copenhagen, and in 1689 became the town organist in Husum, Germany. Of him, Johann Mattheson wrote: 'Sometimes he took his violin up to the organ loft and played with such skill that it sounded like two, three, or more instruments at once. Thus he would realize the upper parts on the violin while his feet played an appropriate bass on the pedals.' Nicolaus Bruhns died, tragically young, in Husum, on March 29th, 1697.
