Reger’s “Five Humoresques“ follow in the footsteps of the nineteenth-century genre inaugurated by Robert Schumann’s “Humoresque“, op. 20. Occasionally Reger gives vent to high-spirited good humor, as when he quotes a hit tune from his own day, “Du bist verrückt mein Kind“ (“You’re crazy, my child”). The piano writing is imaginative, brilliantly pianistic, and harmonically rich. Our volume forms yet another addition to our series of Reger’s piano music.
