Notes and Editorial Reviews

Exuberant and prolific, Max Reger composed an extraordinary volume and variety of works in his short life – he was just 43 when he died in 1916. Reger saw himself as an heir to Brahms, Schumann, Beethoven and Bach, while also drawing inspiration from Wagner and Liszt. The energy, richness, rapture and contrapuntal invention of his art is celebrated in this 8-CD collection of works for orchestra, chamber ensemble, piano, organ, choir and solo voice.

REVIEW:

This collection makes a nice introduction to the composer. The Hiller and Mozart Variations fill the first disc - the latter nice done by Joseph Keilberth. The A Ballet Suite is a charmer. Mark Lattimer's disc of the Bach and Telemann
Read more variations shows he certa inly has the measure of these scores, as well as the technique, and the piano sound is very fine. 2 1/2 discs of organ music slightly unbalance the set, but the music is certainly worth exploring. The songs and choral music are terrific, and to have the likes of Fischer-Dieskau, Olaf Bar, and Christa Ludwig sing them is a treat.
