Welcome to the Max-Reger-Institute (MRI),
the centre of Reger research

It is the aim of the Max-Reger-Institute to convey Reger's life and work to a larger audience both for scholars and laypeople alike. The substantial collection and library makes the Max-Reger-Institute an important resource to all interested.

World premiere in Turku

A very special world premiere will take place in Turku — Ira Levin’s new orchestral version of Max Reger’s Variations and Fugue on a Theme by Joh. Seb. Bach op. 81. Conductor and pianist Ira Levin, who is cultivating a close relationship with Max Reger institute since 2005 and orchestrated many of Reger’s pieces, dedicated the manuscript to Susanne Popp and gave it to her as a present in January 2016.
