It is little known that alongside his three great sonatas for clarinet and piano, Reger also wrote two charming miniatures for the same instrumentation. At the same time, it was the composer's express desire to reach a wider public with smaller works such as these that were to be published in music journals. Henle's single edition (taken from the volume of all of Reger's sonatas and pieces 51480909, also edited by Michael Kube) meets this wish today: its effervescent Tarantella and the Albumblatt that is full of nuances provide clarinetists and pianists with an easy introduction to Max Reger's magical world of sound.
