Although Franck's output for the organ was small, it was influential; his work is considered to have laid the foundation of the French school of organ music. This volume includes all his best-known works for organ: the Six Pièces (Liszt ranked them with the masterpieces of Bach); the Trois Pièces, among them the well-known "Piece Héroique"; and the Trois Chorals, perhaps Franck's finest organ works.
This volume contains the following works:
Six Pièces: Fantaisie in C major; Grande Piece Symphonique; Prelude, Fugue et Variation; Pastrole; Priere; and Final.
Trois Pièces: Fantaisie in A major; Cantabile; and Piece Heroique.
Trois Chorals: No. 1 in E major; No. 2 in B minor; and No. 3 in A minor.
The music has been reproduced directly from the authoritative Durand edition in an oblong format for easy use at the keyboard. Organists and music lovers will welcome this inexpensive treasury of Franck's greatest organ music, assemble in one convenient, attractive volume designed for years of play and study.
