Johann Nicolaus Hanff (Composer)

Born: 25th September 1663, Gossel, Germany

Died: 25th December 1711, Schleswig, Germany

Nationality: German

Johann Nikolaus Hanff was a North German organist and composer. Hanff was born in Wechmar in Thuringia and worked in Eutin, Hamburg and Schleswig.

In 1696 he became organist and conductor to the Bishop of Lübeck. Hanff’s style, with the melody moving slowly but with rich ornamentation above a slow-moving and not very clearly individualized accompaniment, was favored by Buxtehude.

While in Hamburg, Hanff taught harpsichord and composition to the young Johann Mattheson for four years.
