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.
