of the Organ Works of César Franck">

Since the first edition was published in 1983, this book has enjoyed a wide success with scholars, teachers, and students. As required reading or even a text for many organ repertoire classes, it is often number one on the list of most frequently stolen books from music libraries! This new edition, greatly enlarged, revised, and emended, incorporates research completed during the past two decades, updating information on the Sainte-Clotilde organ while retaining its original intent: to compile and examine the extant, first-hand references to Franck as an organ student, organ player, and organ teacher written by those who knew him, heard him, and studied with him. Of particular interest is the analysis of recordings by Franck’s student and successor, Charles Tournemire, and a translation of his book on César Franck. In addition to 46 illustrations, the book contains accounts (in English) by those who knew Franck: John Hinton, Gabriel Pierné, Louis de Serres, Édouard Bopp, Albert Mahaut, Henri Busser, and Louis Vierne. 240 pages hardbound
