Henri Herz (Vienna, 6 January 1803 – Paris, 5 January 1888) was a pianist and composer, Austrian by birth, and French by domicile. Herz was born Heinrich Herz in Vienna. He was Jewish by birth, although he asked the musical journalist Fétis not to mention this in the latter's musical encyclopaedia. As a child Herz studied with his father and in Coblenz with the organist Daniel Hünten. In 1816 he entered the Paris Conservatoire, where he studied under Victor Dourlen and Anton Reicha. His brother Jacques Herz (1794-1880) was a fellow-pupil at the Conservatoire, and also became a noted pianist and teacher. A celebrated pianist, Herz traveled worldwide, including tours in Europe, Russia, South America, and in the United States of America, where he concertised all the way to San Francisco, California, where his performances were compared to the more extravagant manner of Leopold de Meyer.

He wrote a book about his experiences abroad, Mes voyages en Amérique (Paris: Achille Faure, 1866) and composed many pieces including eight piano concertos. Among his many musical works, he was involved with the composition of Hexaméron (the fourth variation on the Bellini's theme is his). Many however found his piano style showy and shallow, and Robert Schumann was amongst those who criticized it. Herz founded his own piano factory in Paris, built a concert hall there and taught at the Conservatoire (1842-74). Of his pupils, only Marie-Aimée Roger-Miclos (1860-1950) recorded, in the early 1900s, for Dischi Fonotipia.
