"All these aspects of his life and art, including the rigorous training and arduous practice that transformed a blind peasant boy into a superb musician, his lifelong friendship with Olivier Messiaen, his sometimes turbulent family life, and the body of works he left - only J. S. Bach wrote more compositions for the organ - are narrated and analyzed by Ann Labounsky, who is uniquely qualified to write this definitive biography. A favorite Langlais pupil, she was asked by Langlais himself to write it and had his full cooperation for numerous long interviews over many years."--BOOK JACKET.

This volume explores twentieth-century organ music through in-depth studies of the principal centers of composition, the most significant composers and their works, and the evolving role of the instrument and its music. The twentieth-century was a time of unprecedented change for organ music, not only in its composition and performance but also in the standards of instrument design and building. Organ music was anything but immune to the complex musical, intellectual, and socio-political climate of the time. Twentieth-Century Organ Music examines the organ's repertory from the entire period, contextualizing it against the background of important social and cultural trends. In a collection of twelve essays, experienced scholars survey the dominant geographic centers of organ music (France, the Netherlands, Scandinavia, the United States, and German-speaking countries) and investigate the composers who made important contributions to the repertory (Reger in Germany, Messiaen in France, Ligeti in Eastern and Central Europe, Howells in Great Britain). Twentieth-Century Organ Music provides a fresh vantage point from which to view one of the twentieth century's most diverse and engaging musical spheres.

This is the first book on the French composer Jean Langlais to be published in English and also the first to provide complete information on all of his published works plus 86 unplubished compositions, and eleven orchestral works. This book traces Langlais' development from his early years of study at the National Institute for the Young Blind, through his long and active career as composer, church musician, and concert organist, and explores the impact that Langlais' hard work, determination, and talent have had on the musical world. It is divided into five major sections, including a biography, interviews, works and performances, a discography, and a bibliography. Listing 240 compositions written between 1927 and 1987, and containing a complete discography of both commercially produced and privately released recordings, the major portion of this volume is an annotated bibliography of writings by and about Langlais, with 536 entries, covering the years from 1926 to 1987, when he celebrated his eightieth birthday. Categories include general references, individual compositions, improvisations, reviews of recordings, nonprint sources, and archive information. There is valuable information on premieres, reactions to Langlais' works and performances, recital programs, and correspondence. The opus numbers, recently completed by Marie-Louise Jaquet-Langlais, the composer's wife, are published here for the first time in a chronological list of compositions, and the index section covers works, authors and translators, and general information.

L'église Saint-Antoine des Quinze-Vingts, à Paris, abrite des instruments d'une beauté mondialement reconnue : Le grand orgue est construit en 1894 par Aristide Cavaillé-Coll pour l'hôtel particulier du baron de l'Espée, avenue du Bois de Boulogne, à Paris. Il est ensuite racheté par un mécène éclairé, et, lui-même, organiste virtuose, le comte Christian de Bertier de Sauvigny, pour le faire installer, en 1909, dans la nouvelle église, par la maison Merklin. L'orgue de chœur Merklin, aux lignes gracieusement élancées, est construit sur une spacieuse tribune. Il sera le centre d'une riche vie musicale. L'historienne, le facteur d'orgue, l'expert, les organistes et les musicologues réunis ici pour la première fois nous offrent la vision complète d'une étonnante aventure, fruit de plusieurs années de recherches : les orgues des salons parisiens du XIXe siècle finissant, la quête d'absolu du baron de l'Espée, la vie foisonnante d'une jeune paroisse à l'aube du XXe siècle, la générosité et le génie de Christian de Bertier de Sauvigny, l'évolution du goût musical sur un siècle dans une église qui devient très vite le lieu de rencontre privilégié des grands maîtres de l'orgue.
