Reger - Versöhnung (Reconciliation) (No. 20 from Aus der Jugendzeit, op. 17)


Walkthrough

Max Reger’s Versöhnung (Reconciliation) demands from the player a vivid imagination, the ability to tell a story in sound. This delightful late Romantic piece describes a character asking someone to be their friend again after a disagreement – pleading, commiserating and even dancing to win back their affection. In the video, I show how project a melody line while at the same time voicing the texture to bring out the expressive harmonic features.
