Notes & Reviews:

Max Reger (1873-1916), best known for his output for organ, composed 32 orchestral works, 24 of which were written in the final thirteen years of his brief forty-three year work. Prior to that time, Reger had essentially composed works for voice, piano and organ, characterized by finely conceived, polyphonic voices increasingly coupled with unusual harmonic effects. 'Works for the Orchestra' includes many pieces that entered mainstream music and can be coined as "modern", though many pieces offer surprises for the listener. There are portions of the 'Bocklin Suite' that have a unexpected austerity and it's worth pointing out that the composer, in the third movement, 'The Isle of the Dead', comes very close to the atmosphere created by Rachmaninov in his own musical in his own musical impression of the painting. Of course, Reger worked on a "big" canvas - a 'Sinfonietta' is usually considered a smaller, lighter version of a symphony, but Reger's 'Sinfonietta' is nearly an hour in length and contains some of his more delicate touches. This specially priced boxed set will prove a fascinating discovery for those listeners who are only familiar with this composer's chamber music.
