Acquisition of autograph

In March 2019 Max-Reger-Institut, with funding by Berthold Leibinger Stiftung and Wüstenrot Stiftung, was able to acquire an autograph that was long thought lost, the manuscript of Max Regers first editong of Johann Sebastian Bachs Präludium und Fuge Es-Dur BMW 552 for piano for two hands (Bach-B1 Nr. 4). This manuscript was presented to the public on May 6th and Prof. Markus Becker (Hannover), who recorded the piano works of Reger, performed the piece.
