'Wreathed in laurels for his marathon cycle of Liszt's complete piano works, the Australian born, London based pianist Leslie Howard has come up with a typically bright idea to showcase his digital dexterity' (The Observer)
Most of Max Reger’s enormous output consists of extremely complex instrumental music but for his Opus 76 he produced sixty (!) songs which have their origin in folk poetry and song. Number 52 is the Mariä Wiegenlied (‘Mary’s Cradle Song’) which became immediately popular and was transcribed for piano by Reger himself and published in 1924.

Pour son op.76, Max Reger – dont l’essentiel de l’œuvre colossal est constitué d’une musique instrumentale fort complexe – produisit soixante (!) mélodies puisant toutes leur source dans la poésie et le chant populaires. Rencontrant d’emblée le succès, la mélodie no52, Mariä Wiegenlied («La berceuse de Marie»), fut transcrite pour piano par Reger lui-même et publiée en 1924.

Français: Hypérion

Der größte Teil des gewaltigen Œuvres von Max Reger besteht aus extrem komplexen Instrumentalwerken, aber als Opus 76 hat er sechzig (!) Lieder volkstümlichen Ursprungs herausgegeben, und die Nr. 52 ist Mariä Wiegenlied, das von Anfang an populär war und von Reger persönlich für Klavier bearbeitet und 1924 veröffentlicht worden ist.
