Notes & Reviews:

"All praise to Toccata Classics for its commitment to recording music that deserves a shot and has mostly gone unheard." - Classical.net

Reinhard Oppel (1878 - 1941) was a central figure in inter-War Germany, as composer, teacher, and theoretician. His rich, late-Romantic music encompasses symphonies, chamber and choral music, songs, and works for piano. His music went underground in East Germany, quite literally; at the end of WWII, as his family fled to the West before the advancing Russian army, they hid his music under the garden shed and there it remained until the fall of Communism, when his son was able to return and retrieve it. This first CD of his heartwarming piano music begins a series of releases intended to win Oppel's music the audience it deserves.
