With his clarinet quintet; begun in 1915; Reger was remembering his role models Mozart and Brahms; whose works in this genre he particularly admired. This melancholic quintet that is worked through in a strictly motivic way was to be Reger's last opus. Shortly after he had sent it to his publisher; he died of a heart attack in May 1916. The quintet was to become his swan song; first performed at a memorial for the composer on 6 November 1916. Almost one hundred years later; Henle now publishes it for the first time in an Urtext edition; edited by the Reger scholar Michael Kube.
