Leon Jessel (1871-1942) was a German composer of operettas and light classical music. He is best known for his popular jaunty march "The Parade of the Tin Soldiers". Jessel was a prolific composer who wrote hundreds of light orchestral pieces, piano pieces, songs, waltzes, mazurkas, marches, choruses, and other salon music. He achieved considerable acclaim with a number of his operettas, in particular Schwarzwaldmädel (Black Forest Girl), which remains popular to this day.
