Notes & Reviews:

Among the works written for the organ by Louis Verne, his six large 'Symphonies' occupy a central position due to their high artistic level, both in terms of composition and performing technique. Yet this composer also devoted his energies repeatedly to the "character piece" in its smaller forms. In 1913 he published '24 Pieces en style libre' in two volumes, a kind of precursor to the present work. While the earlier work can still be performed on the reed organ, the 'Fantaisie Pieces' work follows a principal of formal construction that reflects a rich tradition. The scrupulously planned choice of all the 24 major and minor keys each with its own characteristic mood recalls J.S. Bach's 'Well-Tempered Clavier' or the Chopin 'Preludes, Op. 28' Vierne's outstanding mastery is demonstrated not only in the work's overall conception, but also in the meticulous attention he devotes to compositional detail. While Vierne's 'Symphonies' for organ can be seen as successors to the works to the work of Guilmani and Widor in the same genre, his work in the smaller forms reveals the unmistakable influence of the Romantic character piece.
