Notes & Reviews:

This time Max Reger is on the program selected by Christoph Schoener with a surprising link to St. Michael's Church in Hamburg. Along with the early chorale fantasia on "Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott" and the mighty Introduction, Passacaglia, and Fugue from the last years of Reger's life, his selection from the Thirty Little Chorale Preludes combining absolute simplicity with demanding harmonies shows the grand master of complex and opulent organ music in a completely new and splendid light. Another organ feast from St. Michael's Church in Hamburg!

Big occasions also require big gestures, and so the Introduction, Passacaglia, and Fugue composed as a commissioned work for the inauguration of the gigantic organ at the Jahrhunderthalle in Breslau is gigantically dimensioned in many a respect. On this perfectly balanced Super Audio CD this big sound can be experienced in space. The reproduction in 2+2+2 format positions the three organ units with breathtaking vividness in the living room and provides a precise acoustic picture of Hamburg's principal church. Almost like a live performance!
