Notes & Reviews:

Max Reger's Piano Trios opp. 2 and 102, his most finely nuanced chamber compositions stand as milestones in late romantic piano chamber music. On the occasion of Reger's 100th anniversary of death this CD is now available again.

He had just emerged from what he termed his "Storm and Drink Period" to go on to achieve the highest honors that a composer of his times could earn. His genius never rested: during his long train trips he thought out the Trio op. 102 in his head.

Critics have had to invent new superlatives to describe the numerous MDG recordings of the Trio Parnassus. "Trio Parnassus? A world-class trio" (American Record Guide). On this CD Chia Chou (piano), Wolfgang Schr÷der violin), and Michael Gro▀ (violoncello) are joined by Gunter Teuffel (viola).
