Gottfried Silbermann (1683 - 1753) is the most prominent Central German organ builder in the baroque period. As Honorary Court and State Organ Builder to the King of Poland and Elector of Saxony he built approximately 45 instruments from one to three manuals. By using elements of French organ building he created a unique sound style.
The two manual organ of the Evangelische Stadtkirche Zöblitz in the Ore Mountains was built by Silbermann in 1742. Hence it belongs to his later works. With 20 stops it is a representative of an instrument type that he realized several times, for example in Freiberg, Fraureuth, Reinhardsgrimma and Forchheim. Thanks to a donation the organ could be carefully restored in 1997 so that nowadays it presents itself in an impressive manner. During the restoration it was also possible to uncover the original coloration of the facade.
