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[1] includes salon pieces, chamber music, symphonies and other large forms, and over 300 piano pieces,[2] but is best remembered if at all today for a much-anthologized Sonatina. He published almost three hundred and fifty compositions.[3]
