Max Reger Edition: Complete Organ Works (Vols.1-17)
Martin Schmeding on 13 different, historic Sauer and Walcker Organs

The exceptional organist Martin Schmeding has recorded the Complete Organ Works by Max Reger on a total of 17 Volumes, on 13 different historic organs from Reger’s time and the very first time in one-dimensional (CD Layer), two-dimensional (Surround Sound) as well as in three-dimensional sound quality (3D-Binaural-Stereo - SACD-Stereo version). Martin Schmeding now presents this complete recording as a noble collectors’ box with a duration of 19h 24m 36s, including a 172-page booklet with 60 coloured illustrations and an additional conversation SACD (Vol.17, in German language), on which he speaks with Mirjam Wiesemann in the Sophie Charlotte hall of the dome of Berlin about his major project.

Max Reger wrote a very extensive organ output which places extremely high demands on the performer. On one hand, Reger's organ works are very virtuosic, on the other hand an organist is needed for the interpretation of Reger ́s works who knows how to mix the sound of the organ and the surrounding sound of the church so that the listener is able to hear the complex levels of Reger's symphonic compositions with a high degree of transparency.

Martin Schmeding presents Reger's Organ Compendium to us with power, big breath and always with the necessary atten-tion to detail - ingredients which are all needed for Reger's works.

Together with the innovative 3D Artificial Head Recording technique (3D-Binaural Stereo Sound) by Cybele Records the listener will be put almost directly to the scene, as if attending the recording live.

Plays on all standard CD players.
