Louis Moreau Gottschalk (8 May 1829, New Orleans, La. – 18 December 1869, Tijuca, Brazil) was an American composer.
He studied piano and harmony in Paris and became very popular as a concert pianist, first in Europe. In 1853, he made a grand tour of the United States, playing his own piano works and conducting his orchestral music. While on a concert tour of Central America and South America, he died of yellow fever in a suburb of Rio de Janiero, Brazil.
His works are primarily for piano, the most popular being The Dying Poet and The Last Hope.
