James A. Altena
Fanfare, November 2016

REGER, M.: Organ Music, Vol. 3 (Weinberger) 777729-2
REGER, M.: Organ Works (Complete), Vol. 4 (Buttmann) OC854

My assessment of the first two volumes of Weinberger’s cycle for CPO was one of tempered enthusiasm; I thought his performances were sound and commendable, but a bit lacking in imagination when compared to Buttmann. Here, I am pleased to say, Weinberger seems to have picked up an additional degree of inspiration, and his performances here fully match Buttmann’s in excellence. © 2016 Fanfare

Stephen Smoliar, May 2016

…pretty much everything on this final release is on a more moderate scale of duration. The result is that, in many respects, this final volume may be the best place to begin for those wishing to become acquainted with Reger’s organ music. There are any number of opportunities to appreciate his dexterity in dealing with winding chromatic lines; but it is easier, on this shorter durational scale, for mind to learn how to sort out the embellishments from what is being embellished. © 2016 Read complete review
