Sheet Music and Program Notes

Leon Jessel was a German composer of operettas and light classical music.  He is best known for The Parade of the Tin Soldiers which is also known as the Parade of the Wooden Soldiers.  He was a prolific composer. 

Although his music was admired by Germany's officials, because of his Jewish heritage, he was arrested by the Gestapo in Berlin where he was tortured.  He died shortly thereafter in a Berlin Hospital.
