Pfleger was born in Schlackenwerth, Bohemia, where he became Kapellmeister and dedicated his Opus 1 to the Duke of Saxe-Lauenburg. In 1662 he went to Güstrow as vice-Kapellmeister to Duke Gustav Adolph of Mecklenburg and in 1665 he was appointed Kapellmeister to the Schleswig-Holstein court at Gottorf, where he was succeeded by Johann Theile in 1673. A ms. cycle of 72 German cantatas for the church year is dedicated to the Flensburg city council. In 1686 he returned to the court at Schlackenwerth and vanishes from the record.
