Max Reger paid homage to his musical guiding star Johann Sebastian Bach not only as an imaginative interpreter, but also as a sensitive arranger, making numerous organ works and the complete Brandenburg Concertos available for piano four hands.more
"Die Interpretationen fallen durch ein ebenso alertes wie feinfühliges und vor allem extrem transparentes, dynamisch exzellent variiertes sowie sehr farbenreiches Spiel auf, das die Brandenburgischen in einem neuen, attraktiven Licht erscheinen lässt." (Pizzicato)
This new release featuring the PianoDuo Takahashi|Lehmann presents rare repertoire for piano duo: the complete recording of Reger's arrangements of the Brandenburg Concertos as well as other works by J.S. Bach.
Max Reger was a key figure in the Bach renaissance at the beginning of the 20th century. Because of his polyphonic compositional style, he was also revered by his followers as 'the modern Bach'. "Sebastian Bach is for me the beginning and end of all music; upon him rests, and from him originates, all real progress! That Bach could be misunderstood for so long is the greatest scandal for the 'critical wisdom' of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries." But it was not only as an interpreter of piano, chamber and orchestral music that he championed his musical role model throughout his lifetime, but also as the editor of several orchestral suites and concertos as well as the arranger of numerous organ works. Thomaskantor Karl Straube praised him for the "perfect manner in which he succeeded in reproducing the sound characteristics of the organ on the pianoforte."
