The author evaluates the significance of the relationship between Max Reger (1873-1916) and contemporary Karl Straube (1873-1950) using primary source materials such as autograph performing manuscripts, reviews, programs, letters and archival sources from contemporary organ building. The result is a much enhanced understanding of Reger in terms of performance practice and reception history, and a re-examination of Straube and, more broadly, of Leipzig as a musical center during this period. 450 pages, hardbound
