Notes & Reviews:

For more than twenty years the Ensemble Villa Musica has repeatedly shown forgotten pearls of chamber music, all too often obscured in today's concert world, in their proper light. This outstanding new recording features Max Reger's famous Clarinet Quintet in A major op. 146 and String Sextet in F major op. 118. Reger had promised to deliver the String Sextet for the Gewandhaus Chamber Music in March 1911 but evidently found it difficult to fill this order. He rejected whole measures and composed them a second time, and in October 1910 he destroyed almost the whole of the first movement, saving only four measures that seemed to him to be good enough.
