Reger's "Five Humoresques" follow in the footsteps of the nineteenth-century genre inaugurated by Robert Schumann's "Humoresque", Op. 20. Occasionally Reger gives vent to high-spirited good humor, as when he quotes a hit tune from his own day, "Du bist verrückt mein Kind" ("You're crazy, my child"). The piano writing is imaginative, brilliantly pianistic, and harmonically rich.
