Notes & Reviews:

Max Reger's orchestral output includes some twenty works, the most well-known being the Mozart Variations, op.132. This set demonstrates Reger's great skills as an orchestrator. Conductor Leif Segerstam leads the Norrkoping Symphony Orchestra in these taxing scores. Segerstam initially impressed reviewers with his 'visionary advocacy' of the Four Bocklin Tone Poems, and the 'alluring transparency' of his Mozart Variations was noted by the BBC Music Magazine.

The Guardian, 27th March 2014
Everything that is included is substantial...the hugely impressive Symphonic Prologue to a Tragedy is dark, brooding and intricately wrought. It's invaluable to have these works available in such lucid, well-played and committed performances.
