2nd September, 2019 New Reger-CD with Ira Levin to be released on 11th October by Naxos


Orchestral Works by Max Reger and Max Reger/Ira Levin with the Brandenburg State Orchestra under the baton of Ira Levin! On the label’s website you can read: “In 1904 Max Reger wrote what was to be the first in a major sequence of variations on themes by his great predecessors. The Variations and Fugue on a Theme by J.S. Bach was written for piano but its richness and virtuosity exceed the scope of the instrument. Ira Levin’s orchestration clarifies the structure, intensifies climaxes and reduces its length. The Four Tone Poems explore the paintings of the symbolist Arnold Boecklin and form symphonic mood pictures that veer from delicacy to Bacchanalian frenzy. On YouTube you already can have a listen https://youtu.be/Bm13JuwC_ns.
