Nicolas Ruis Espadero(1832-1890), Cuban pianist, composer and piano teacher, learned to play piano from his mother at very young age despite his father's objection, later studied with Polish pianist Julian Fontata, a close friend of Chopin, who stayed in Havana for a year and half. He composed piano music(piano trio,scherzo, sonata), but none of his works were servived as of this day due to his life style.
