Wolfgang Edward Rebner (1910-1993) was the son of the violinist Adolph Rebner, teacher of the composer Paul Hindemith. When Rebner left Germany in 1939 he pursued a career in Hollywood as a pianist. He often performed in Los Angeles for Peter Yates’s “Evenings on the Roof” which evolved into the famous“Monday Evening Concerts”. After World War II he became more involved with the music of his homeland, finally returning to Germany permanently to teach at the Richard Strauss Conservatory in Munich. It was in Hollywood that he met the pianist Theodore Saidenberg, a much sought-after accompanist and partner in chamber music. Saidenberg (1908-1986) and Rebner who teamed up on radio, perform in 1946 a two-piano version of “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring”, BWV 147, a work that is best known in Myra Hess’s extraordinary two-hand transcription.
