Roger Judd playing the organ at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.

Max Reger (1873-1916) was truly a prodigious composer: he wrote close on a thousand compositions in a working life of only 27 years, encompassing all musical genres except opera.

Thanks to his long friendship with the distinguished Organist (later Kantor) of St Thomas’s Church in Leipzig, Karl Straube (1873-1950), who was a tireless champion of Reger’s organ music and gave many performances of his work, it was his organ music that first brought him to public notice.
