DURUFLE: Organ Music
Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Maurice Durufl?® was a highly self-critical composer whose musical language can be viewed as a synthesis of the impressionist tradition of Debussy and Ravel and the modal, Gregorian-inspired style of Faur?®. Although his best-known work is the Requiem, his distinctive and powerful organ music continues the French tradition of organ-playing and composition. The 'Pr?®lude sur l'Intro?»t de l'?ëpiphanie' demonstrates Durufl?®'s mastery in capturing the shape and colour of plainsong. With its perfect architectural balance and proportions, the 'Pr?®lude et Fugue sur le nom d'Alain' written in memory of Durufl?®'s colleague Jehan Alain, killed in action in 1940, has become one of Durufl?®'s most popular organ works.
