Published at: Dover Publications (October 15, 2001)

View on Amazon

Unlike the vast majority of classical music for organ which requires both manual and pedal dexterity this unique collection of 33 works is devoted solely to organ music originally written on two staves and intended for manuals alone. Some was conceived for the 19th-century free-reed instrument, for the harmonium or reed organ, for performance in the home, as well as for organists of small churches who may not have had sufficient technique to perform with their feet as well as their hands.

This unique volume consists almost exclusively of rare, out-of-print editions selected from the private library of author-performer Rollin Smith. Contents include Berlioz’s Rustic Serenade to the Madonna, Saint-Sans’ Barcarolle and Prayer, Three Musical Sketches by Bizet, Liszt’s The Shepherds at the Manger: In dulci jubilo, plus organ classics by Beethoven, Brahms, Bruckner, Franck, Reger, and other great composers, including movements from organ sonatas by Mendelssohn and Widor’s Third Symphony for Organ and Orchestra, and the complete Third Sonata by Guilmant.

Lovers of the rich burnished tones of the cello will appreciate the keynote of this volume: complete scores of three great romantic cello concertos brought together in one convenient source.

Now musicians can enjoy the felicities of each work, complete and unabridged, in this sturdy, attractive Dover volume.

This engaging book discusses the colorful personalities and beloved music of the French romantic organist-composers. Michael Murray draws vivid portraits of Aristide Cavaill-Coll (1811-1899), the greatest and most influential organ builder of his time, and of seven other musicians with connections to Cavaill-Coll and to one another: Camille Saint-Sans (1835-1921), Csar Franck (1822-1890), Charles-Marie Widor (1844-1937), Louis Vierne (1870-1937), Marcel Dupr (1886-1971), Jean Langlais (1907-1991), and Olivier Messiaen (1908-1992).

The book offers to lovers of French music and cultureand especially to student organistsdetails of these composers` lives and times and of their styles and techniques. Drawing on his personal acquaintance with Messiaen, Langlais, Dupr, and other famous contemporaries, and on period documents, original accounts, early recordings, and other primary sources, Murray examines the relationship between organ building and musical composition, the nature of romanticism and classicism, and the ever-perplexing question of composer versus interpreter.
