Max Reger – “The Last Giant in Music”

Una Barry (soprano) Graham Barber and Daniel Gordon (pianos)

Paul Hindemith’s estimation of Reger (1873-1916) sits uncomfortably with his almost complete neglect in the concert hall. Today’s event showcases this elusive and controversial figure through filmed documentary and live performance. Daniel Gordon and Graham Barber will play his many-faceted Variations and Fugue on a Theme of Beethoven, Op.86, for two pianos on the University’s newly paired Steinways, and Una Barry (soprano) sings a selection of Reger lieder. There will also be filmed performances of organ, orchestral and chamber music on the big screen – in short, a rare feast of expressive and highly charged music!
