Max Reger’s Sonatas for Solo Violin op.42 conclude this complete recording of his violin oeuvre. Opus 42 represents a supreme challenge for the Swedish violinist Ulf Wallin, both technically and musically. It is not without reason that Reger is strongly associated with “chromatic polyphony”.

In his late oeuvre Reger’s great love for Mozart is reflected in his efforts to achieve transparency and simplicity. Reger himself described his works as very difficult technically and came to the conclusion that they usually intimidated interpreters – but not Ulf Wallin, who outstandingly meets and masters this challenge.

BBC Music Magazine

Wallin shapes it all with great skill

Gramophone Magazine

Wallin oozes a total sense of command throughout this set of wonderful solo music, in both the forceful and fragile moments of pieces that pose considerable technical demands.
