Description
Hans Gál (1890–1987) had much success in the 1920s, despite eschewing musical fashions and holding fast to tonality. He was appointed Director of the Mainz Conservatory in 1929, but Hitler's accession to power in 1933 led to his instant dismissal and the banning of all his works. He eventually settled in Edinburgh, where he remained active until his death in 1987. Gal's love of melody and penchant for polyphonic textures are evident in this disc's Concertino for Organ and Strings; Toccata; Two Religious Songs; Prelude and Fugue in A-flat; and Fantasy, Arioso, and Capriccio.

"Gál was a widely respected and performed composer in the 1920s, but the Nazis drove him out of Germany, and though he continued writing, teaching and composing in Scotland … his reputation never quite recovered. Elegant, adeptly constructed, and unashamedly tonal, even beautiful, his music hearkens back to a bygone tradition of Viennese late romanticism that wasn't what the music world thought composers should be writing in the late 20th century."—Anne Midgette, Washington Post
