Today, 100 years after Reger’s death, his music-historical ranking is undisputed at least in the German-speaking world; however, his public presence is by no means as great as his amazingly rich oeuvre, comprising all genres except opera, would lead one to expect. Max Reger was granted hardly more than 20 productive years. He was no less intensively involved in the obsessive distribution of his works as his own agent and interpreter – this personal union, too, was unique to him around the turn of the twentieth century.
Following the conclusion of the composer’s complete organ works with Bernhard Buttmann, OehmsClassics now proudly presents yet another complete edition – this time Max Reger’s works for the clarinet.
