Fritz Spindler

Fritz Spindler (Wurzbach, 24 November 1817 – Niederlößnitz/Radebeul, near Dresden, 26 December 1905) was a German pianist and composer, especially of works for the piano. His output of more than 400 opus numbers includes salon pieces, chamber music, symphonies and other large forms, and over 300 piano pieces, but is best remembered if at all today for a much-anthologized Sonatina. He published almost three hundred and fifty compositions.
