Friedrich Richard Faltin (January 5, 1835 Danzig – June 1, 1918 in Helsinki) was a Finnish-German composer, organist, conductor and music teacher.
Faltin began his music studies in Germany at the age of seven. He completed his studies at the Leipzig Conservatory in 1856, when he moved to Finland. After initially working as a music teacher in Vyborg, he moved to Helsinki in 1869, where he became organist of Nikolainkirkko (now Helsinki Cathedral) for more than 40 years, until 1913. From 1870 to 1879 he also worked as a conductor of the Finnish Opera, from 1871 to 1896 as a music teacher at the University of Helsinki and from 1882 as a teacher of organ playing at the Helsinki Music Institute.
