Notes & Reviews:

"Piano music occupied Hans Gal (1890-1987) throughout his long life, and all of it is immediately appealing, harmonically ingenuous, extremely fluent, well crafted, and supremely laid out for the instrument... The First Sonatine's opening movement, for example, makes me think of what would have happened if Brahms had rewritten early Prokofiev. The second movement of the early Op. 24 Suite revels in the slinky chromaticism often linked to Korngold; its slow fourth movement's brooding sonorities breathe the air of Nielsen; and the perky finale already reveals Gal's fondness for rapid interval leaps and melodic displacements." -Classics Today
