Sample from our last concert Thinking in Canon: Duo Nr.1, Op.131b
Max Reger (1873-1916) was a German composer, conductor, pianist, organist and academic teacher. He produced an enormous output over little more than 25 years, nearly always in abstract forms. Few of his compositions are well known in the 21st century. His works followed classical and baroque compositional techniques such as fugue and continuo. The influence of the latter can be heard in his chamber works which are deeply reflective and unconventional. Among those we find his 3 Canons & Fugues in Old Style, Op.131b, written in 1914.
