Notes & Reviews:

Marcel Dupré and Jehan Alain are among the most important 20th century French composers of organ music. Historically, they are at the end of the great symphonic-romantic organ tradition that developed in France during the second half of the 19th century. The Trois Préludes et Fugues op. 7 are among Dupré's earliest works, and they are also his most famous. When he wrote hisTrois Esquisses, on the other hand, he was already thinking about his legacy. He dedicated this work to his pupil Jeanne Demessieux, whom he viewed as his best student and hoped that she would become his artistic heir. Unfortunately, a rift developed between Dupré and Demessieux in 1945. + Jehan Alain's unorthodox, exceptionally versatile talent was apparent early on. In addition to music, he also expressed himself through poetry and art. His Trois Danses are the epitome of his compositional work. He completed them at the front in World War II, which he did not survive. + Gunther Rost studied for many years with Marie-Claire Alain, Jehan Alain's sister. She, in turn, was a pupil of Marcel Dupré. During his studies in Paris, Gunther Rost was appointed docent at the Würzburg Academy of Music before taking over the Institute for Organ at the University for Music and Theater in Graz, Austria in 2008 at age 27.
