With the New Year Concert, the Karlsruhe-based Max-Reger Institute will herald the start of the Reger Year 2016, which will be celebrated throughout the world.
When Reger died 100 years ago, he was among the most widely performed composers in Germany. No city, no concert promoter and hardly any self-respecting interpreter would want to miss the »Reger Evenings« – a concert format, which is recreated by this New Year concert, presenting a multifaceted portrait.
»String Trio in A Minor Op77b« from 1904 will start the concert, which shows the jovial, neo-classical facet of Reger. The selection of his past »successful songs« following this represents a kaleidoscope of conflicting and often highly expressive means of expression. To conclude the concert, the virtuosic »Beethoven Variations Op86« for two pianos will be performed.

The string trio is made up of prizewinning young artists Aleksandra Manic, Christina Strimbeanu and Rebecca Krieg, while Reger’s songs will be presented by the students of Professor Hanno Müller-Brachmann’s class. The brilliant Beethoven Variations will be in the seasoned hands of Professor Saule Tatubaeva and Xiayi Jiang.
