He wrote sonatina Op. 136, no. 2.
I know of one song that Carl Reinecke wrote: Sonatina Op. 136, no. 4. (Jeff Reinecke (of no known relation) <reineckesonic.net>).
Another song that Carl Reinecke wrote was Sonata "Undine", Op. 167, for flute and piano. (Meghann Campos <mcamposucsu.colorado.edu>).
Another work by Carl Reinecke is Trio in A minor Op. 188 for horn, oboe, and piano. (Kent D. Brimhall <pucknortherntel.net>).
He composed a flute concerto in D major and some easy little piece for piano (I posted one of them on Classical Midi Archives http://www.prs.net/midi.html: its Elegy). (Romain Talon <romain.talonwanadoo.fr>).
Reinecke also wrote a very interesting piano sonata for the left hand alone Op. 179. It was published by Peters Edition (No. 3314). (<did-irving.demon.co.uk>).
His third piano concerto in MIDI is present on the web page of Pierre Schwob (http://www.classicalarchives.com) and on (http://www.espace-midi.com). Naturally, it’s midi music, with its imperfections, but it’s a good illustration of this marvellous concerto.
Reinecke was the son of a music teacher at Hamburg. He studied violin, alto, piano and started composing at the age of 7. He was also a famous conductor. In 1860, he was appointed music direstor of the Gewandhaus Orchestra of Leipzig, and professor of piano and composition at the Conservatory. He was very much influenced by Mendelssohn and Schumann since 1840. In 1888 he wrote a suite of 16 piano pieces, titled "Von der wiege bis zum Grabe" (From the Cradle to the Grave) Op. 202 (arranged for flute and piano by E. Köhler), which is totaly in the spirit of the two composers. Brahms’ star overshadowed him more and more since 1890. Then wind instruments took a greater place in his musical life — they were systematically avoided during the romantic era —, a developement that may largely be explained by his desire to avoid competing Brahms on his own turf. Then he composed an Octet for Winds in B flat, Op 216 (ca. 1892), a Sextet for Winds in B flat, Op. 271 (ca. 1905) and a flute concerto in D Major (1908). He retained an astonishing creating vitality till his death. in 1910.
