Biographical info: Alexander (1756-1809) was the son of Joseph Reinagle, of Austrian descent. Although Alexander was born in Portsmouth, the family moved to Edinburgh; by 1778 he was teaching harpsichord in Glasgow. He travelled to Europe in 1784, and although he returned briefly to England, he moved to USA in 1786. His brother Joseph, also a composer and author of Introduction to the Art of Cello Playing, was brother in law to Schetky. (Grove)
