Rued Langgaard: Collected Preludes And Minor Pieces For Organ Vol. 1-3

Books | Organ

Composer: Rued Langgaard
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

Collected preludes and minor pieces for organ, volume 1-3. Edited by Birgitte Ebert and Bendt Viinholt Nielsen.

The Rued Langgaard Edition, Edition Wilhelm Hansen, Copenhagen, 2017.

With the publication of Rued Langgaard’s preludes and minor pieces for organ in three volumes, the contribution made by the composer to this repertoire is being presented in its entirety and all its diversity. The publishers have decided to include as many of
Langgaard’s small pieces for organ as it has been possible to present in an authentic form, rather than to carry out a selection based on aesthetic or formal criteria. The 112 compositions are presented in chronological order in accordance with Bendt Viinholt
Nielsen’s catalogue of works Rued Langgaard’s Compositions (1991). The intention to include, as far as possible, all the completed compositions in the edition has resulted in
considerable editorial challenges. In certain cases, Langgaard’s own handwritten manuscripts are so unclear or incomplete that the editors have had to abandon the possibility of arriving at a form of publication that lives up to the strict requirements made by the Rued Langgaard Edition regarding authenticity and a critical approach to the source material. Therefore, the editors have made no attempt to include a number of mainly untitled and undated preludes, which Langgaard left behind in so loose a notation that publication in anything approaching authentic form is not possible (these pieces are registered in the catalogue of works, in the appendix of omitted works, as U10-U20).
