Abstract:
Max Reger's treatise Beitrage zur Modulationslehre (Supplement to the Theory of Modulation) has received little attention in the ninety-eight years since its publication. This document discusses the short treatise in detail and relates the information gained from this study to the analysis of representative organ works composed in typical genres. An introductory chapter provides biographical information about his early musical development and his career as organist, composer and conductor; the importance of his lifelong interest in composing for the organ and the critical regard in which he is held are also examined in this chapter. A thorough discussion of Beitrage zur Modulationslehre highlights Reger's establishment of tonality as seen in the one hundred short examples of the treatise. Representative organ works (Op. 67, Nos. 10, 25, 33, and 35; Op. 65, No. 10; Op. 52, No. 3; and Op. 135b) are analyzed from a perspective that establishes a relationship between the harmonic practices of Reger's modulation examples and those found in the pieces selected from performance repertoire. Reger's dense harmonic style has resulted in mixed critical assessments concerning his music and his importance in music history. This document provides an additional perspective from which to analyze his compositions and evaluate his contributions to turn-of-the-century musical developments.
