Geißler organ in Frauenkirche Groitzsch

Short facts

In 1885, Conrad Geißler built the two-console organ in Groitzsch with mechanical action and frictional wind chests.

After his apprenticeship, Conrad Geißler (1825 - 1897) directed his own workshop at Weinecke, Ladegast, Mende and Walcker from 1852 - 1897 in Eilenburg. During this time, he built approx. 120 organs. A close relationship between Ladegast and Geißler developed after Geißler's participation at Ladegast. Between 1864 and 1873, as part of this assignment, he manufactured four organs. He built his biggest organ, with three consoles and 44 stops, for the Town Church in Torgau (no longer preserved). In 1885, Conrad Geißler built the two-manual organ in Groitzsch with mechanical action and frictional wind chests. II On 17/2007, a general overhaul was undertaken by the Bochmann company in Kohren-Sahlis.
