✏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.
