In his numerous collections of small character pieces, the imaginative Max Reger gradually developed a style of his own, in the shadow of the Romantic epigones. His music is characterized by modulating harmonies with a simultaneous recourse to classical formal tropes. So it is very worthwhile to take a closer look at the "Ten Small Concert Pieces" op. 44 from 1899, which display astonishing harmonic boldness. Ten short concert pieces of moderate difficulty, with titles such as "Album Leaf", "Burletta", "Once Upon a Time", or simply "Capriccio" form a series and introduce the pianist to Reger's piano oeuvre. The composer's original fingerings make this carefully edited Urtext edition especially interesting.
