Out now – Reger: The Centenary Collection

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.

Recently published: Max Reger. Werk statt Leben – Biographie

Just in time for the Reger-Year 2016 Breitkopf & Härtel published the Reger biography written by Susanne Popp. The comprehensive biography presents Regers prolific life on the basis of letters and documents, some of them practically unknown, which visually depict the restless life of the workaholic. Accompanying digital content can be found on maxreger.info.
