Hans Seeling

Czech composer and pianist Hans Seeling, also known as Jan Seeling, was born on 14 February 1828 in Prague, where he also studied.

He toured Europe as a pianist and died in Prague on 25 or 26 May 1862, aged only thirty-four.

His limited output as a composer consists of mostly piano music in a Germanic style, and he must have had large hands, as much of his music requires a large stretch.
