John McCabe: Le Poisson Magique

Books | Organ

Publisher: Novello
Composer: John McCabe
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

Le Poisson Magique is a work by John McCabe for Organ. A full performance of the piece lasts around 6 minutes.

British composer and pianist John McCabe died in 2015. This work is an early one and published now for the first time. It dates from 1964, a rich year for his organ music also including the Johannes-Partita, Nocturne and Prelude. Le Poisson Magique is a meditation on the painting of the same name by Paul Klee and takes the form of a free passacaglia in two alternating tempi. A solid technique is required to tackle some of the more complex polyphonic passages but as ever the rewards with McCabe’s music are broad and deep. - Sunday by Sunday
