Reger, Max

(19 March 1873, Brand near Bayreuth, Germany – 11 May 1916, Leipzig)
   Known for his many chamber pieces, Reger, spurred perhaps by his friendship with Arnold Mendelssohn, also composed practical liturgical works for chorus, of which his Psalm 100 (1909, op. 106) is his best known, and about 30 publications for organ containing over 190 pieces, many based on chorales and most exploiting Baroque forms such as fugue. Some are intended for moderately skilled players, while others require a virtuoso organist.
