Home Biography Music Samples 



Max Wagenknecht (14 August 1857 – 7 May 1922) was a German composer of organ and piano music. He spent most of his life in the Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania region where he was music teacher, organist and composer at the Franzburg and Anklam Teachers’ College. 

He is well known for Opus 5, “58 Vor- und Nachspiele”, completed in July 1889 in Franzburg. The work demonstrates a remarkable gift for melodic organ compositions bridging traditional church music and the late 19th century romantic music era.
