Moritz Moszkowski was born in Breslau, Prussia in 1854. He settled in Berlin where he earned his living teaching piano. Over time he became an accomplished concert pianist as well as a teacher. This gave him the opportunity to tour Europe, both as a pianist and occasionally as a conductor. During this time he also composed, where he found some success with light works for both piano and orchestra.

Moszkowski's most well-known and enduring pieces are the Spanish Dances, Opus 12, composed as piano duets and later arranged by Moszkowski for solo piano in order to meet the demand for the music. These dances were inspired by Spanish rhythms and sounds, a theme that was popular during the 19th Century as evidenced in the works of Bizet, Rimsky-Korsakov and Chabrier, to mention just a few.
