Heinrich Lichner (March 6, 1829 - January 7, 1898) was a prolific German composer, best known today for his teaching pieces - simple piano works written for students. He was born in Harpersdorf, Silesia. His sonatinas, including Op. 4, 49, and 66 (among others) are in a light, fluent classical style, although the harmony occasionally betrays the influence of romanticism. He was also a director and organist. He worked as organist at the church of the 11,000 virgins. He spent a part of his life as the director of saengerbund (choral festival) in Breslau, where he died.
