Rudolf Serkin plays Bach and Reger (with David Singer, clarinet)
Rudolf Serkin, son-in-law of Adolf Busch, but also member of the board of trustees of Max-Reger-Institute, left a rich discographical legacy, but not too many recordings of works by Reger are available. Because of that we are happy to present, in collaboration with Marlboro Music, a performance of Reger's Klarinettensonate B-Dur op. 107 from the year 1977, along with one of Serkins earliest recording ever, Bach's Goldberg-Variationen, which were recorded in 1928 für for Welte-Mignon reproducing piano. This release documents a playback from Klang Raum Riehen in 2015 which was dedicated to Busch, Serkin and Reger and which was accompanied by an exhibition of Max-Reger-Institute.
