Has anybody done a Max Reger marathon? Or Hans Pfitzner [who EMI even
admits in their Composer in Person series, is a second-rate composer]?

That is what makes these marathons worth while. You get a better idea of
the true range of a great composer's work, so you can hear how the
famous works fit in amongst his general output.
It is easy to assume that great geniuses produce only masterpieces.
