Max Reger, Organ Works – 2CD Set

£18.00

The two major organ works on these discs (his longest for organ) show Max Reger at the height of his powers; not only do they sustain a structural coherence over an impressive span, but they show an almost inexhaustible proliferation of invention.

As well as the large-scale Variations and Fugue on an Original Theme and the Introduction Passacaglia and Fugue in E minor, this 2CD set includes a collection shorter preludes and fugues – the Five Easy Preludes and Fugues and two transcriptions of preludes and fugues by JS Bach from the Well-Tempered Clavier.

The concentration necessary in the shorter works lends them, paradoxically, a feeling of greater substance – The Times

Compelling recitals – The Northern Echo
