Max Reger - Träume am Kamin Op. 143 (1-3) - Konstantin Semilakovs

Dreams by the fireside, some of the first pieces by Reger I ever looked at.  They convinced me that, despite what some idiot critics have said,  Bela Bartok, Paul Hindemeth, Arnold Schoenberg, Alban Berg, Serge Prokofiev and a host of great performers, including such discerning folk as Albert Schweitzer and in the next generation Rudolph Serkin concluded, that Max Reger was a great composer whose music was of the highest quality.   When you've got folks like those on your side who needs a critic who has never done anything?

Update:  S. T. , keep your day job, you know nothing about music.  That never kept your BBF from hacking about it, though. But the paid scribbling racket got too dicy for a hack like him to make a living at it.
