About the album

Organist David Goode continues his series of recordings of the organ works of Max Reger on Signum with a new recording of his Fantasias and Fugues, recorded on the organ of Bath Abbey. The album includes his Fantasia and Fugue on BACH and the ‘Symphonic’ Fantasia and Fugue. David Goode is organist at Eton College, and is also much in demand as a teacher. In recent years he has composed a number of organ and choral works, and has received critical acclaim for his recordings.
De eerste opname van het orgel van Bath Abbey, met werken van Reger
Met dit album zet David Goode zijn serie opnames van de orgelwerken van Max Reger voort. Dit deel bevat fantasia’s en fuga’s, waaronder de Fantasia en Fuga op B.A.C.H. en de ‘Symfonische’ Fantasia en Fuga, uitgevoerd op het orgel van Bath Abbey. Dit is de eerste opname waarop dit orgel klinkt.

De vier grootschalige fantasia’s en fuga’s omvatten het grootste deel van Regers carrière, van 1898 tot 1915. Zelfs binnen deze kleine groep werken is het mogelijk om een voortgang te horen van een vroeg en deels eigengemaakt neobarokidioom, door de complexiteit en praal van zijn middenperiode, naar de transparantie en bedachtzame sfeer van de Fantasia en Fuga in d klein opus 135b, wat een van Regers laatste werken was.

An exemplary introduction’. 7 volumes of a complete survey of Reger’s organ music have now also appeared, to warm reviews.
