German musician, composer, educator and publisher. He played oboe in Joseph Haydn's orchestra in London. After moving to the United States in the 1790s, he co-founded the Philharmonic Society (ca.1810–1825) and the Handel and Haydn Society (est.1815) in Boston, Massachusetts. As a music publisher, Graupner promoted the popular Rudiments of the Art of Playing on the Piano-Forte (Boston, 1806; 2nd ed., 1819), one of the earliest such volumes published in the United States, and possibly the first. He also published sheet music by numerous composers. He died in Boston on 16 April 1836.
Sy Scholfield quotes "Musical Interludes in Boston, 1795-1830" by Harold Earle Johnson (Columbia University Press, 1943), p. 166: "Johann Christian Gottlieb Graupner was born between two and three o'clock in the afternoon of October 6, 1767, to Johann Georg and Anna Maria Agnesa (Schoenhagen) Graupner of Hanover."
