Johann Philipp Förtsch (14 May 1652 - 14 December 1732) was a German baroque composer, statesman and doctor.
Förtsch was born in Wertheim and possibly received his musical education from Johann Philipp Krieger. Moving to Hamburg in 1674 to write librettos, he then became in the 1680s one of the main composers in the heyday of the Oper am Gänsemarkt. In later life he returned to medicine.
