Karl Leister has a fine recording of the sonata(s) of Reger--all three of
them plus the quintet and the short piano-clarinet works on a two CD set.
Ed Brunner (Bruner?) of Switzerland also has recorded the "large" sonata
of Reger. Some of us do venture outside the "main-stream"--I for one do
not consider Reger's clarinet works "outside" the mainstream--but then I
also perform Albertsen, Thorarinsson, Madsen, Weis, Ireland, Bax,
Stanford,Hurlstone, Cooke etc. They are also good works--but you must
find a very very willing partner who will take on learning this (to them)
Outside the Mainstream literature.
