Johann Denner

  Johann Christoph Denner, Inventor of the Clarinet born August 13, 1655 in Leipzig, Germany and died  April 20, 1707 in Nurnberg, Bavaria.  Denner was a German Musician, Performer and Instrument Maker dedicating his talents to improving already existing woodwind instruments. His well tuned recorders, flutes, oboes, and bassoons were highly regarded throughout Europe.

One of these, the chalumeau (a term also used for a double-reed instrument), was known to Denner; apparently the attempts to perfect the design of the chalumeau led to Denner’s invention of the clarinet.

Two of his sons, Jacob and Johann David Denner, also became instrument builders. At least sixty-eight instruments attributed to J. C. Denner have survived to the present day.
