Editorial Reviews

?Reger (1973-1916) is regarded in Germany as a major composer whose works exercised considerable influence on 20th-century musical developments, but in other countries (including the US) he is generally dismissed as a composer of contrapuntal works of bewildering complexity. Grim's bio-bibliography is welcomed as an important addition to the small body of Reger literature in English. . . it does contain an international listing of nearly 1,900 books, dissertations, articles, and reviews. Furthermore, Grim provides annotations, while Max-Reger-Bibliographie lists only citations. Grim also includes a lengthy, although not quite complete, discography (Jorge Bolet's London recording of the Telemann Variations and Wolfgang Anheisser's Electrola disc of Schlichte Weisen excerpts are unaccountably missing) and a biographical essay that succinctly assesses Reger's achievement and historical position. Grim's biobibliography should stimulate interest in the examination, performance, and reassessment of Reger's works on the part of English-speaking musicians and musicologists.??Choice
