Description: Reger was one of the very few important Bach-transcribers who was also a professional organist (Saint-Saëns was too but his transcriptions did not include as much of Bach's organ music), making this 110 minute program the more interesting for his solutions to how to get organ pedals onto a piano keyboard with only two hands and a sustaining pedal. The chorale preludes tend to be simple and straightforward; Reger's characteristic Schwung comes to the fore in the Prelude/Toccata and Fugue transcriptions. 2 CDs for the price of 1. Markus Becker (piano).
