Max Reger: Thirty Little Chorale Preludes For Organ Op.135a

Books | Organ

Publisher: Henle Verlag
Composer: Max Reger
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

Max Reger, the creator of forbiddingly difficult Organ music, could also take a different track. His “Thirty Little Chorale Preludes“ are intended for semi-professional organists always on the lookout for good Organ chorales for use in Sunday church services. Reger selected the best-known tunes of his day from the Lutheran hymnal. Most of them are still in use today and form excellent additions to modern services. Michael Kube, in a detailed preface, draws a vivid picture of the composer and his superhuman creative powers.

        Dunoon GB Antique 'reluctant organist'. DIY-er.

        Useful short pieces. Good sight-reading exercises.
        Printing could be clearer - but nowhere near 'difficult to use'.

        Reger's Thirty Little Chorale Preludes are a very approachable collection, even to the beginner / intermediate organist, which - according to the introductory notes - appears to have been the composer's intention. A handful of the pieces are scored for manuals alone; most require basic pedal technique. Most are very beautiful in their own particular way. As is typical with Reger, some of the more romanticised progressions / modulations will take the inexperienced organist by surprise, but given that most of the pieces are only a single page long, this collection forms an excellent introduction to the composer's style without requiring the virtuosity implied by many of his other works.
