Stephen Heller (1813-1888), a Hungarian-born concert pianist and composer, counted Chopin, Schumann and Liszt among his friends and admirers. Settling in Paris, he produced more than 160 published piano works. The beautifully evocative Studies, Op. 45 & 46 are among the compositions of Heller which are most familiar to pianists today.
