Here is a felicitous, witty, and inventive work that avoids the somewhat academic tedium of some of Reger's early pieces. The score alternates a fair amount of treble clef with alto clef, however violists will welcome this beautifully crafted sonata. Two alternative viola versions, one pristine and the other edited by Jürgen Weber, are included in a fastidious text that is Henle's hallmark.
