Christian Friedrich Gottlieb Schwenke (1767–1822) was a pupil of his father and of Kirnberger and Marpurg in Berlin. In 1789 he succeeded C P E Bach as municipal music director and cantor in Hamburg, and worked and taught there for the rest of his life. His arrangement of Mozart's well-known "Gran Partita" was published in 1815.
