Complete Organ Works, Volume 9

Price: $41.95


Louis Vierne (1870-1937) studied privately with Cesar Franck and was appointed titulaire organist at Notre-Dame (Paris) in 1900. Numerous concert tours throughout Europe and the USA made him well-known outside France.

Vierne’s organ works are masterpieces of organ music and firmly established in the virtuoso organ repertoire. In particular, Vierne took the form of the organ symphony to new stylistic heights and had a decisive influence on the development of the art of organ playing worldwide.
