a new and provocative way of teaching organ performance ... With an appealing tone that is both serious and optimistic, yet includes occasional asides of homespun advice, they juxtapose a detailed discussion of the standard way the organ has been taught for the last century or so ... with an equally systematic method for playing early music. * Musical Letters, vol. 82, no. 3 * Their first two chapters ... provide a particularly elegant presentation of this tradition, enriched by an impressive musicological rigour that in itself sets a new standard for such an undertaking. * Musical Letters, vol. 82, no. 3 * insightful comparisons of the organ and the piano - which are frequent and to the point - certainly should reach students at the level where they are. ... Especially convincing is the brief overview of the twentieth-century American organ. * Musical Letters, vol. 82, no. 3 * for students with eyes (and ears) wide open to the whole of the field, in a position to understand the instrument and its music as historical artefacts - indeed, as a magnificent legacy from the past - and not merely as vehicles for self-promotion, this book will be a wonderful resource. * Musical Letters, vol. 82, no. 3 * --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From the Publisher
This systematic approach to organ technique focuses on a modern legato technique for organ music composed after 1750, and an early technique for works written before that date.
