Rheinberger's music was different from his contemporaries. While they were composing for loud, joyful noises, Rheinberger aimed for a simple, clear voice. With simple texture and clear speaking voice, his compositions shine and sparkle. His trios (Opus 49 and 189), organ sonatas (various opuses), and his monologues (Opus 162).
