Ignace Joseph Pleyel; 18 June 1757 – 14 November 1831) was an Austrian-born French composer and piano builder of the Classical period.
Pleyel retired in 1824 and moved to the countryside about 50 km outside Paris. He died in 1831, apparently quite aware that his own musical style had been fully displaced by the new Romanticism in music. He was buried in Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris.
