The extensive and eagerly awaited Reger biography couldn't be introduced at a better time. And it comes from a most qualified hand that of Susanne Popp, author of the Reger Work Catalogue and head of the Max Reger Institute for many years. She was predestined to portray one of the most fascinating composers of the past turn of the century. No better time? In May 2016 we will be commemorating the 100th anniversary of the death of Max Reger, and the musical world will want to honor with many events the great "out-of-time" composer who saw himself between tradition and avant-garde. Susanne Popp's comprehensive biography provides help for finding our way in this prolific life on the basis of letters and documents, some of them practically unknown, which visually depict the restless life of the workaholic. Moreover, for the biographical information, a multi-media project is also being planned through audio examples and visual documents on the Reger Institute's home page.
