5.0 out of 5 stars A must for all organists, 16 Jan 2004

This review is from: Making Music on the Organ (Paperback)
Peter Hurford, the renowned concert performer and recording artist, has written a short but superbly crafted account of organ playing that should be read by all organists. Every aspect of a sound technique is discussed, including posture, finger and pedal technique and hints on suitable clothing and footwear, all well illustrated. There's also a fascinating and succinct history of the organ, details of how organs are constructed and how they function and an excellent introduction to several important schools of organ music. Hurford is renowned for his complete Bach recording, and accordingly a chapter is devoted to the interpretation of Bach's organ music. This book does not pretend to be a complete account of how to approach any individual piece of organ music, but it provides a solid foundation that will surely encourage musical and thoughtful, perceptive playing. Warmly recommended.
