A slew of solo and chamber music pieces by Ernst Leopold Stahl were published by Carl Giessel junior in Bayreuth at the cusp of the new century (1900-01): Les Adieux/Abschied op. 41; Serenade op. 42; An der Quelle, Salonstück op. 50; and Marguerite, Gavotte-Caprice op. 56, all for solo harp;  Schelmerei, Scherzo op. 52 and Romanze op. 69 for violin & harp; and Nocturno op. 66 for flute, violin, cello and harp. This repertoire was later taken over by Zimmermann Verlag.

If one pays attention to Stahl’s dates, which might be approximate, he must have died tragically young, yet created an impressive body of work! Gedenken op. 49 for cello (or violin – a separate part is also provided) and harp, to be translated as “Memory” (think in memoriam), was dedicated to his “unforgettable” son Adhémar, who sadly must have passed away in infancy.Stahl-Gedenken
