Violin Solo with Piano Accompaniment
Edited by Wolfgang Birtel. Arranged by Wolfgang Birtel.
Born in the village of Brand in the Upper Palatinate, Max Reger (1873-1916) was taught by the renowned music theoretician Hugo Riemann. After finishing his studies and working as a freelance performer and composer in Wiesbaden, he moved to Weiden, beset by personal crises, and eventually to Munich. To make himself better known in the musical scene, he had some of his smaller works inserted in the magazine Neue Musikzeitung. This is how his Romanze G-Dur for violin and piano was published in November 1901, a beautiful occasional work, ideal for music lessons or as a tranquil encore after a concert, also in an arrangement for viola and piano.
