As with previous volumes, Volume VI of the Urtext Edition of Alexandre Guilmant’s works presents a practical edition of selected works which have become famous in the international organ repertoire. The character pieces offer an insight into Guilmant’s lively imagination and performing practice. With moderate technical demands, clarity of form, these works are ideal for both church and concert performance.
Guilmant‘s eight organ sonatas are 'classics' in the French Romantic organ tradition and belong to the permanent repertoire of organists everywhere. His late organ sonatas in particular draw on the idiom of Beethoven, Mendelssohn and Schumann while paying homage to the Belle Époque.
