    7. Urtext / Critical Edition

    Eight years after he had composed his first two Clarinet Sonatas, Op. 49, Reger confessed in a letter to a friend that he was once again committing "a new crime against harmony and counterpoint". He was referring to the Clarinet Sonata, Op. 107. Reger made a point of not destroying the chamber music character of the work by having too much virtuosic padding. "Brahms developed classic examples of what the style was meant to be like". Alongside the sonatas, this Urtext edition also contains two charming "encores": a Tarantella in G Minor and an Album Leaf in E-flat Major. The Sonata, Op. 49, No. 2 is for clarinet in A. The other pieces are for clarinet in B-flat.
