The Dresden Staatskapelle’s young solo clarinettist Robert Oberaigner and the ARD prizewinner Michael Schöch have joined forces on this recording to present Reger's two Clarinet Sonatas op.49 along with his Sonata op.107.

Right from the beginning Reger’s op.49 no.1 is absolutely enthralling: Allegro affannato is his interpretive prescription here, and Oberaigner and Schöch’s rendering of a character situated somewhere between “breathless”, “hurried” and “pressured” has to be heard to be believed!

Reger’s Third Sonata, composed some eight years after the first two, produces its effect in a very similar manner: classical in its design, this work wins over the listener with clarity and simplicity reflecting the greatest mastery. The premiere, at which the dedicatee Grand Duke Ernst Ludwig zu Hesse himself was in attendance, must have been an overwhelming success.

The two soloists form a chamber dream duo of a kind that is only rarely found. Tone colours and expressive gestures are exchanged and further developed, so that the result is pure joy: competition occurs in the field of dynamic expression, and the quest for the unknown becomes a common cause. Luxurious 2+2+2 sound, a Super Audio CD of the highest recording quality.
