Johann Friedrich Gräfe (7 May 1711 – 5 or 8 February 1787) was a civil servant and an amateur composer, whose works are still known today.
He was born in Braunschweig and baptized on 7 May 1711 in Nauen. He was a Kammerrat, a member of the court of the Principality of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel. He was quite recognized at the time as an amateur composer. The attribution of his works is not always considered certain. His daughter Louise Gräfe married the writer Johann Arnold Ebert.
