Johann Paul Eichhorn (1787 - 1861)

Johann Paul Eichhorn was born in 1787 in the village of Neuses bei Coburg, the son of a linen-weaver. Even though music played an important rôle in the Eichhorns’ life from very early on, after his confirmation Johann Paul Eichhorn learned the trade of linen-weaving and worked as a weaver until his twentieth year. At the same time he showed evidence of a particular musical talent and taught himself the violin so that he could play dance music with village musicians. At the age of twenty he was called up for military service in Coburg. His aim was to obtain a posting with the military band, so he took lessons in horn and trombone.

In 1810 Johann Paul Eichhorn was appointed principal oboist of the court chapel, where he played mostly trombone and bass horn. For the latter instrument he wrote various works which he often performed later in concerts with his children. After his marriage to Margarete Elisabeth Mann a son, Johann Gottfried Ernst, was born in 1822. After Margarete’s death Eichhorn remarried, in 1823. He had five children by Margarete Elisabeth Wittig, among them Johann Carl Eduard, who was born in 1823.
