William Gardiner (March 15, 1770, Lei­ces­ter, Eng­land – No­vem­ber 16, 1853, Leicester) was a musician who introduced the music of his contemporary, Beethoven, to Great Britain. Initially following in the footsteps of his father, who traded as a hosier, his passion for music came to dominate his life and work. He was an avid performer on the piano and the viola and has left a number of compositions and writings on musical matters, but is best known for his work "The Music of Nature".[1]
