Louis Oertel has operated in Hannover since 1878. It has two parts to its catalog: popular works mainly for piano, and solo instrumental works. Like C.F. Schmidt of Heilbronn and A.E. Fischer of Bremen it has a wide range of works for wind instruments such as clarinet (Reinhold Ritter, Johann Sobeck), horn (Kling) (see the cover of Kling 's Concerto brillant ) trombone and cornet (Stohr).

Note that Johannes Oertel of Munich (Hans Pfitzner's publisher), and Georges Oertel of Brussels, are different companies. However, we find Louis Oertel of London printed on some scores.
