MAX REGER (1873-1916): Violin Concerto in A, Op. 101 (arr. chamber ensemble Rudolf Kolisch [1896-1978]).
Catalogue Number: 02R026
Description: The Linos Ensemble present the third in their series of the Schoenberg circle's “Association for Private Musical Performance” arrangements of large-scale orchestral works for private performance. Only discovered in the Kolisch archive at Harvard in 1986, this arrangement (string quartet, double bass, flute, clarinet, horn, harmonium and piano) dates from 1921. Collectors may remember that we offered a version of this way back in May 2007 with a Russian violinist and a provincial Austrian chamber ensemble; this new version is 10 full minutes longer. Did the previous one make cuts? I’ll leave that up to people who have the score in their lap while listening... Winfried Rademacher (violin), Linos Ensemble.
