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, is a different company.
