✏An American Organist in Paris Book Summary : An American Organist in Paris presents Lee Orville Erwin's letters from France to his family in 1930-1931. In these letters, Erwin recounts his daily experiences and encounters with some of the 20th century's greatest musicians and teachers. He writes of his lessons with André Marchal, Jean Verd, and Nadia Boulanger and dinner parties with Olivier Messiaen. Erwin's letters not only provide the singular experiences of a young musician but also reflect the common experiences shared by the multitude of American composers who studied in France during this time. These letters are extensively footnoted to provide clarity and background information of the locations and personalities discussed. A biographical chapter on Erwin, which outlines his extensive musical career and impact on the silent film music revival in the 20th century is also included. This book will serve as a unique glimpse into the life of one of America's most prolific composers for the theater organ.

✏Louis Vierne Book Summary : Louis Vierne (1870-1937), a student of Cesar Franck and Charles-Marie Widor, was organist of the Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris for 37 years, until his death at the console during a recital. He was Widor's successor as the organ's great French symphonist, an assessment the passage of time has proved correct. Vierne's music has remained in the repertoire of organists throughout the world, never undergoing the periodic eclipses experienced by his contemporaries. Vierne's autobiography, Mes Souvenirs, originally published serially in the 1930s, is here available in a profusely illustrated, extensively annotated English translation. Vierne and the Organ is the first major study of the great organist of Notre-Dame and includes chapters on his American tour, on recordings, contemporary reminiscences, definitive textual corrections, the organ symphonies, and on his death and succession, as well as a thematic catalogue of his organ works.

✏Organists and Organ Playing in Nineteenth Century France and Belgium Book Summary : Now in paperback! Organists and Organ Playing in Nineteenth-Century France and Belgium Orpha Ochse From the catastrophes of the French Revolution to a Golden Age of organ culture. [O]ne simply must recommend this highly coherent and well-illustrated book...."--L'Orgue Even the well-informed reader will find a number of surprises. Who knows, for example, that Fryderyk Chopin played the organ for a funeral service and that Lefébure-Wély, in turn, played the great pianist and composer's Préludes for his funeral at the Madeleine? The abundance of details, we should add, does nothing to obscure the architectural clarity of this book." --La Flûte harmonique Now Ms. Ochse has succeeded in producing still another landmark work.... Although the work is extraordinarily well documented, the prose retains a narrative quality throughout, at times even taking on the character of good storytelling." --The American Organist Orpha Ochse, Professor Emerita at Whittier College, is author of The History of the Organ in the United States (Indiana University Press). She is well known as a teacher, lecturer, recitalist, and church musician.

✏Joseph Jongen and His Organ Music Book Summary : Joseph Jongen was Director of the Brussels Conservatoire from 1925 to 1939. He was first and foremost a composer and yet his career as an organist and composer of organ music was remarkable. His Sonata Ero�ca has become one of the enduring works of the repertory, and the Symphonie Concertante, commissioned by Rodman Wanamaker for the organ of the Philadelphia store, has been considered the finest of all twentieth-century organ concertos. This is the first book ever to appear about Joseph Jongen in any language. It is based on twenty years of research by its author, John Scott Whiteley. Part I traces Jongen's life and achievements as an organist,from his earliest training in Franck's birthplace, Li�ge, to his exile in England and his final years in Brussels, during which time he headed the team that designed the organ for Belgian Radio. Part II is a guide to the organ music from the points of view of both performer and musicologist. Appendices provide a catalogue of works, a numbering system for his works without opus numbers, specifications of the organs he played and lists of variant readings in his manuscripts. This book is indispensable for serious students of the organ, the Romantic organ repertoire and European music of the early twentieth century.
