Description: The latest Romantic excavation project from this wonderful little Finnish label is an Austrian pianist-composer-teacher who studied under Bruckner and Dessof (composition) and Julius Epstein (piano). As the pianist here points out in his notes, Reinhold is no forgotten "Great Composer" but these piano works, with traces of Brahms in a couple or more, are all very listenable examples of Germanic Romanticism and collectors should not hesitate. Jouni Somero (piano).
