Even though Max Reger's great Violin Concerto can be found on a number of other CD recordings, we did not want to withhold from you the opportunity to hear the interpretation by our Swedish violinist Ulf Wallin, who studied in Stockholm and Vienna. On cpo he has performed solo and chamber music with equal devotion, and his many recordings have met with major recognition and attention in the international media.

There are several other excellent recordings of this Concerto, the best of which is the Berlin Classics disc with Herbert Blomstedt and the Staatskapelle Dresden, with its concertmaster, Manfred Scherzer, as soloist. I had thought it would be unlikely to be surpassed, but this new CPO surround-sound SACD does exactly that. Violinist Ulf Schirmer, who has been recording the complete violin sonatas of Reger for CPO, is joined by the Munich Radio Symphony for a performance that is ever bit as wonderful as the Berlin Classics disc. The factor that tips the choice in CPO's favor is its superb 5-channel surround sound: the listener is enveloped -- immersed -- in Reger's lush score in a manner that really clarifies the various strands of his dense orchestral texture. Schirmer conquers the difficult violin part with admirable aplomb. Highly recommended!
