French Organ Music: From the Revolution to Franck and Widor1580460712, 9781580460712

Author : William J. Peterson, Lawrence Archbold, William J. Peterson
Description:Nineteenth-century French organ music attracts an ever-increasing number of performers and devotees. The music of Cesar Franck and other distinguished composers-Boly, Guilmant, Widor-and the impact upon this repertoire of the organ-building achievements of Aristide Cavaill-Coll, are here explored through stylistic analysis, the study of the compositional process, and the exploration of how ideas about organ technique and performance practice traditions developed and became codified. New consideration is also given to the political and cultural contexts within which Franck and other French organist-composers worked. Contributors: KIMBERLEY MARSHALL, WILLIAM J. PETERSON, BENJAMIN VAN WYE, CRAIG CRAMER, JESSE E. ESCHBACH, KAREN HASTINGS-DEANS, MARIE-LOUISE JAQUET-LANGLAIS, DANIEL ROTH, EDWARD ZIMMERMAN, LAWRENCE ARCHBOLD, ROLLIN SMITH
