This separate edition is particularly noteworthy since it presents Reger's last significant organ work in its entirety Except for the Reger Complete Edition, this work has been published heretofore only in a radically shortened version, which apparently reflects Reger's last wishes, but does not allow a satisfactory appreciation of the creative process. Precisely in its original, completeform, this key work, dedicated to Richard Strauss, Shows that Max Reger underwent a period of radial stylistic change towards 1915, the development of which was hindered by his sudden death.
