Notes & Reviews:

This CD contains four representative masterworks from the rich and varied oeuvre for organ produced by Max Reger, played at the Jehmlich organ at St. Wolfgang Church in Saxonian Schneeberg by Istvan Ella. In his remarkable style, the celebrated Hungarian organist interprets the Second Sonata for organ, the Introduction and Passacaglia in F minor, the Fantasia and Fugue in D minor, and the Chorale Fantasia "Straf mich nicht in deinem Zorn." The Jehmlich organ was built after the accomplished reconstruction of St. Wolfgang Church, which had been heavily damaged during the Second World War. In its richness and variety of sound, it appears as an ideal instrument for this kind of literature. In addition to that, Istvan Ella is a true connoisseur of this instrument. After a CD featuring music by Mendelssohn, Rheinberger, Reger, and Liszt - and the 5-CD box set of Liszt's complete organ works - this is his third organ production realized with Querstand at this instrument.
