Hermann Gustav Goetz (born Königsberg, December 7, 1840, died Hottingen, December 3, 1876) was a German composer.
After studying in Berlin, he moved to Switzerland in 1863. After ten years spent as a critic, pianist and conductor as well, he spent the last three years of his life composing. Goetz's compositions include a symphony, two piano concertos, a violin concerto in one movement, much piano music, a piano trio, piano quartet, piano quintet, and sonata for piano four-hands (two players). There are also two operas, Der Widerspänstigen Zähmung based on Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew and Francesca da Rimini based on Dante.
