Notes & Reviews:

Heinz Tiessen (1887 - 1971) was one of the most prominent composers of the Weimar Republic, but his career was abruptly halted during WWII as his music was deemed "undesirable" by the Nazi Party. Tiessen's compositions never re-emerged from that cultural embargo and largely sank into obscurity until now. The American born, Berlin based pianist Matthew Rubinstein is a fine ambassador for this overlooked composer's piano works which include Eine Natur Trilogie, a three-part symphonic poem for piano.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
I wish I could say that this music - all of it skillfully crafted, honorable, much of it tuneful and lively - is memorable.
