When Max Reger and his chamber music are mentioned, music lovers immediately think of compositions for organ, lieder or the great piano variations. The fact that over the course of many years the composer created at regular intervals a considerable number of compositions for solo strings remains an insider tip. This was a genre which was considered relatively unimportant by the 19th century and was therefore forgotten.
At the young age of 26, in 1899, Reger started working with the baroque genre for the first time and created Four Sonatas for Solo Violin op. 42. Six years later followed the Seven Sonatas for Solo Violin op. 91, about which the composer wrote to the Heidelberg musical director Philipp Wolfram on the 5th September 1905, “I am well – how the violin players are, however, I don’t know!” Once again, between 1909 and 1912, Reger devoted himself to this type of chamber music and composed Preludes and Fugues for Solo Violin op. 117.

Tabea Zimmermann’s playing is profound, sculptural, and woven with unpretentious zeal. The autumnal colors of her instrument (a 1980 Vatelot) surround rather than charm you, thereby revealing her musical discourse’s basic humanism, which makes this instrumental singing like suspended time, one that the music requires. Here is an admirable DSD recording from start to finish.
