Heino Eller (7 March 1887 – 16 June 1970), an Estonian composer and music teacher, graduated from the St Petersburg Conservatory, specialising in composition and music theory.

Heino Eller's best-known works include the symphonic poems Koit (Daybreak) and Videvik (Twilight) as well as the beautiful Kodumaine viis (Homeland Tune) both as a piano and a string orchestra work. He has written three symphonies, a violin concerto, works for different instrumental groups and solo instruments. Eller's student, Eduard Tubin, continued the same line in Estonian music. Eller has been called a real Estonian composer and the music he created belongs to the golden treasury of Estonian national musical composition.
