Notes & Reviews:

Richard Stöhr (1874 - 1967) was yet another Austrian composer driven by the Nazis into American exile. His output - ripe for rediscovery - includes 7 symphonies, 15 violin sonatas among much other chamber music, songs, choral and piano pieces. His two cello and piano works, recorded here in the first of a series of Stöhr CDs, reveal a lyrical and expressive composer downstream from Brahms and Schumann. The disc continues the Toccata's rediscovery of composers who suffered under the Third Reich.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
The music itself is lovely and I think it is potentially more than just that. The recording is well balanced between instruments and the sound quality is outstanding. The cellist seems to be pulling things back when the intensity rises too high for his comfort. Your liner notes are great, and we should buy this. And Toccata should give us more of Sthr's music.
