*August Kühnel was a German gambist and composed a single opus in the middle baroque era.

August Kühnel held appointments at various German courst, beginning at age sixteen as a gambist in the court chapel of Duke Moritz von Schsen-Zeits in 1661. His further education included a year in Paris where he polished his technique and learned the French style. Unsettled conditions in Germany caused him to travel at various times; he was in London in 1682 and again in 1685, playing solos on the baryton, according to the "London Gazette". His single publication, "Sonate o Partite ad una o due Viole da Gamba con il Basso Continuo" of 1698 contains fourteen compositions in a mixtue of Franch and Italian styles from a German perspective.
