Reger Organ Works
This 3 CD set collects together Reger’s seven majestic chorale fantasias (including Wachet auf and Hallelujah! Gott zu loben) as well as the popular 7 Pieces Op. 145 and associated chorale preludes, all atmospherically recorded on the Hill/Klais organ in Bath Abbey.
This brings together Reger’s two largest pieces for organ, the lyrical and inventive Variations on an Original Theme Op. 73, and the mighty Introduction, Passacaglia and Fugue Op. 127, together with a collection of shorter works, recorded on the substantial Klais organ in Symphony Hall, Birmingham.
This single disc presents four major works with fugues: the little-known C minor Fantasia and Fugue Op. 29, the Fantasia and Fugue on BACH (one of his grandest works), the titanic Symphonic Fantasy and Fugue Op. 57, and the popular late Fantasia and Fugue Op. 135b, all recorded on the Hill/Klais organ in Bath Abbey.
