Hans Gál: Music for Cello

Hans Gál: Music for Cello

The Vienna-born Hans Gál (1890–1987) settled in Edinburgh after fleeing from the Nazis in 1938 and became a much-loved figure in his adoptive town. But he never lost his Viennese fondness for melody, as these three works demonstrate – the Sonata with piano composed in 1953 and the two works for solo cello in 1982, when he was 92, almost the last music he wrote.

1 review for Hans Gál: Music for Cello

  1. :

    “While Gál’s works are melodic, they are not in a 19th century style; he found his own unique voice and wrote in a style that now seems to be in line with the work of 21st-century melodists. … Nakipbekova and Fichert are a most accomplished duo and their playing is recorded in clear and present sound.” —Maria Nockin, Fanfare
