Daniel Steibelt (1765-1823) was a German pianist and composer. He started studying music until his father forced him to join the Prussian army, which he later deserted to begin a nomadic career as a pianist before settling in Paris. He eventually began to split his time between Paris and London, and later started on a professional tour in Germany. In 1808 he was invited by the Tsar Alexander I to St Petersburg, succeeding Francois-Adrien Boieldieu as director of the Royal Opera in 1811, where he remained for the rest of his life.
