ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the introduction of atonal expressionism by German composer Max Reger. The oddest feature of a work that was deemed ultra-progressive in 1903 is its designated instrument which is the organ, representing the living spirit of a classical music composer Johann Sebastian Bach. The enormous reverberation time a large organ demands, the instrument's bionic lungs, and the explicit playing around with upper harmonic partials by means of mixture and mutation stops.
