One of the major keyboard composers of the early 20th century, Max Reger made numerous piano arrangements of BachÕs orchestral and chamber compositions, and these piano four-hand arrangements of the Brandenburg Concertos rank among his finest accomplishments in the genre. Not merely reductions of the orchestral scores, RegerÕs four-hand versions recast the original masterpieces in a truly pianistic way, creating a fascinating and satisfying addition to the piano four-hand repertoire.
