Josef Bárta, also Josef Bartha, (1744 in Prague - 13 June 1787 in Vienna ) was a Czech composer.


Bárta lived until 1770 as a priest and organist at the Salvator Church in Prague. He then moved to Vienna. In addition to three operas and a singspiel, Bárta wrote piano sonatas, string quartets, and 13 symphonies. His other works are presumed lost.
