Summary

(This text has been automatically translated by Google translate)
Who was r? Why should he be our most loved problem composer? Before WWI he was at the forefront of the German-Austrian avant-garde, along with Mahler, Strauss and Schönberg. Today Reger's music has largely been forgotten, with the exception of a number of spectacular organ works. Reger's style is very complex and often extremely aggressive, balancing on the extreme limits of romance and tonality. But there is also lyricism, pastoral beauty and burlesque humor. This publication knows how to highlight all those aspects. The DVDs contain documentaries as well as performances of Reger's music. The documentaries roughly run through Reger's biography, although it could have been more. However, the focus is mainly on the music, with beautifully chosen fragments that make you curious about more. Many great organ works are reviewed, strangely enough, with the exception of the important Fantasy and Fugue on the theme of BACH. However, Reger was also a composer of a great deal of chamber music, songs and choral music. There is still much to discover here for the enthusiast, because this music will not be very well known. Very impressive is the unfortunately unfinished Dies Irae, in which the horrors of WWI are condensed into a single scare. (HJ)
