Alexandre Guilmant: Organ Sonatas

Books | Organ

Publisher: Dover Publications
Composer: Alexandre Guilmant
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

The eight sonatas of Guilmant may well lay claim to classical rank. Originally conceived for the French organs of Cavaille-Col, they are sufficiently broad in conception as to lose little, if anything, in their interpretation on English and American instruments. At the time of their composition (1874-1909) they brought to the Organ a new sense which had been too little cultivated by organists.

This volume is edited by A. Eaglefield Hull and contains the First Sonata in D Minor Op.42, Second Sonata In D Major Op.50, Third Sonata In C Minor Op.56, Fourth Sonata In D Minor Op.61 and the Fifth Sonata In C Minor Op.80.

      Five sonatas for an average - advanced player, very enjoyable to play with some lovely individual movements for service use and recitals, especially number 1. Med - large organ organ (III/ped) required but could get away with II/ped.

      Great quality volume, slight shame it doesn't include the last 3 sonatas. Will be useful for years!
