The article features German musician Rudolf Straube, who was described by Jacob Adlung as a well-taught keyboard student of J.S. Bach. Straube experienced great success as a composer for the lute having been able to publish two sonatas in Leipzig, Germany in 1746. He later on moved to England to pursue success, but William Jackson of Exeter said that Straube struggled at first in his new country. He was later on appointed as the music master for Queen Charlotte of England, whom he dedicated his work "Gavotte."
