Notes & Reviews:

The style and work of composers Max Reger and Josef Rheinberger can be seen as opposite in many ways. But as much as their techniques and approaches may differ, there are also strong parallels. They can both be understood as central representatives of German romantic organ music, and there is also some intersection in their personal biographies (such as transitional working periods in Munich). Thus, it makes perfect sense that Peter Kofler would choose to contrast one with the other. The way that the St. Michael's organist juxtaposes Reger and Rheinberger is particularly charming on this new recording.
