The exceptional organist Martin Schmeding has recorded the Complete Organ Works by Max Reger on a total of 17 Volumes, and on 13 different historic organs from Reger’s time and for the very first time in one-dimensional (CD Layer), two-dimensional (SS) and three-dimensional sound quality (3D-Binaural-Stereo - SACD-Stereo version). Martin Schmeding now presents this complete recording as a noble collector box that includes a 172-page DVD booklet with 60 colored illustrations and an additional conversation album (Vol. 17, in German language), on which he speaks with Mirjam Wiesemann in Sophie Charlotte Hall of the dome of Berlin about his major project. Max Reger wrote an extensive organ repertoire 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 high transparency. Martin Schmeding presents Reger's Organ Compendium to us with power, big breath, and always with the necessary attention to detail - ingredients which are all needed for Reger's works.
