Description: Eller’s piano music, a total of 206 works, is the largest part of this composer’s output. It is also the largest body of works in Estonian classical music. But most of these pieces are unknown, even though the best of them are original contributions to the piano repertoire of the twentieth century, with Eller’s sensitive lyricism underpinned by gentle humor and an occasional epic tone. This volume’s contents cover a period from 1910 to 1965. Sten Lassmann (piano).
