Carl August Fischer (1828 - 1892) was born in Chemnitz / Ebersdorf. He worked as an organist in London and at several churches in Dresden and was called the "Saxon Organ King." Concert trips took him to Prague, London and Edinburgh. His friend Franz Liszt called Fischer as one of the outstanding organists of his time. In 1872 he played with Anton Bruckner the inauguration concert of the "Ladegast" organ in the "Musikvereissaal" in Vienna. He composed songs and large-scale organ works especially four symphonies for organ and orchestra, which have also been performed in Chemnitz. In preparation for the City Anniversary 2018 ( 875 years Chemnitz) two outstanding works by important composers of Chemnitz are to be performed: The 100th Psalm by Ewald G. Siegert, which was written directly in response to Max Reger's 100th Psalm (Reger's Psalm was first performed by Reger in the Chemnitz Lukas Church ) and the Symphony in C major op. 30 for organ and orchestra by Carl August Fischer. This symphony combines the organ with the romantic orchestra in great form, which is hardly to be found at that time in German-speaking countries.
