Carl Reinecke

Concerto in D Major, op. 283

            Public memory is cruel, and there are legions whose names were household words during their lifetimes, only to gradually fade into obscurity.  Who today remembers folks like the formerly prominent Americans, Ida Tarbell, Edward Everett, and Father Coughlin, for example?  And similarly the German composer, conductor, pedagogue, and pianist, Carl Reinecke.
