Notes & Reviews:

This release completes CPO's complete recordings of Max Reger's violin oeuvre. This extensive oeuvre includes all of Reger's compositional periods, from Op. 1 to his last, unfinished Op. 147. Op. 42 revealed itself as a supreme challenge for violinist Ulf Wallin, both technically and musicially. Wallin quickly realized why Reger, is with no doubt, a master of chromatic polyphony. Reger obviously took cues from J.S. Bach in his compositions as well as lyrical and harmonic design from Brahms and Liszt.

Gramophone Magazine, September 2016
Wallin oozes a total sense of command throughout this set of wonderful solo music, in both the forceful and fragile moments of pieces that pose considerable technical demands.

BBC Music Magazine, December 2016
Wallin shapes it all with great skill.
