a Bohemian violinist and composer. He was the brother of Jirí Antonín Benda, and he worked for much of his life at the court of Frederick the Great. Benda became the founder of a German school of violin playing. Benda was a master of all the difficulties of violin playing, and the rapidity of his execution and the mellow sweetness of his highest notes were unequalled. He had many pupils and wrote a number of works, chiefly exercises and studies for the violin. Benda died in Potsdam.
