Johann Georg Wunderlich was a German composer and flautist. He was first taught by his father, who was an oboist in the chapel of the principality of Ansbach. At 21 Wundrelich took flute lessons in Paris with Felix Rault. From 1778- 1783 he was a member of the Concert Spirituel orchestra. He "performed a solo concerto there on 7 June 1778 and appeared regularly as a soloist in 1779." In 1781 Wunderlich joined the Paris opera as second flautist and quickly rose to principal, which he remained until 1813 when he was succeeded by Jean-Louis Tulou.
