Anton Cajetan Adlgasser

Anton Cajetan Adlgasser was born April 3, 1728, at Inzell in Bavaria.

After being a pupil of Eberlin’s he was sent to Italy by the Archbishop of Salzbrug, and recalled thence to the post of organist to the cathedral and cembalist to the court at Salzburg, where he died Dec. 21, 1777, from an apoplectic stroke while at the organ.

Adlgasser was noted both as organ player and contrapuntist. His works remain mostly in manuscript.
