Georg Matthias Monn

Austrian composer, organist and teacher Georg Matthias Monn was born in Vienna on 6 April 1717.

We know little about his life, but he worked as an organist, initially at Klosterneuburg.

His music is interesting because it straddles the Baroque and classical periods. There's also some confusion between music written by Monn and his younger brother, Johann Christoph Mann [sic]. To confuse things still further, Georg Monn could be the same person as Johann Georg Mann.

Georg Matthias Monn died in Vienna from tuberculosis on 3 October 1750, aged thirty-three.
