Guest Hector5 Posted June 24, 2008 Share Posted June 24, 2008 I have been banging my head against a brick wall in terms of my Meursault recital and have come up with the following programme: Prelude and Fugue in C minor (BWV 537) – J. S. Bach Arabesque – Louis Vierne Scherzo - Samuel Rousseau Prélude Funèbre – J. Guy Ropartz Finale – Henry Smart Fantasie (Op 73) Samuel Rousseau****** Canzona – René Vierne Suite Romantique – Denis Bédard i. Prelude-Choral ii. Allegro giocoso iii. Intermezzo iv. Final-Toccata Improvisation As you can see, I have tried to please the locals as well as find something that will suit a 1m and pedal (albeit well-stocked) organ. I have one problem - I'm not sure about the Fantasie, as it's long'ish and in bite-sized chunks and VERY Franckian and a little turgid. Can anyone suggest something in it's place - I did think of the Andante (Movement II) and Allegro (Movement I) from Maquiare's Premiere Symphonie instead. Certainly these will work on the organ with no problem, but I wonder if there's anything else out there worth trying - large scale, and suited to a meaty one manual and pedal instrument (stoplist on the thread). Over to you, Hector P.S. The Smart piece is fantastic and comes from a volume of pieces edited by Lemare available from the Sibley Music Archive.
