Wolfgang Rosenthal (8 September 1882 – 10 June 1971) was a German Oral surgeon. Until the mid 1930s he also pursued a parallel career as a bass-baritone singer.After the destructive bombing of the Johanniskirche in Leipzig it became necessary to identify the physical remains of Johann Sebastian Bach before they could be reburied at the Thomaskirche nearby: Rosenthal was able to combine his knowledge of anatomy with his insights (confirmed by further anatomical investigations) into the physical effect of a life time of organ playing on a musician's legs to provide the necessary identification.
