Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Museum of Music Automatons in Seewen and the Max Reger Institute in Karlsruhe both contain recording rolls made by Max Reger and several of his contemporaries manufactured by the firm of M. Welte & Sons on a Welte Philharmonie recording organ beginning in 1911 in Freiburg im Breisgau. This double CD contains, for the first time, not only all the recordings that Reger made for the firm, but also more interpretations of Reger‘s works on the second CD with the organists Günther Ramin, Kurt Grosse, Walter Fischer and Joseph Messner. These interpretations also sound as if played by magic on the Britannic Organ of the Museum of Music Automatons. - Oehms The Museum of Music Automatons in Seewen and the Max Reger Institute in Karlsruhe both contain recording rolls made by Max Reger and several of his contemporaries manufactured by the firm of M.
