Requiem Prelude

Recommended Posts

Not an especially adventurous work, written in a day and a half for a funeral. I decided to upload it simply because there isn't much in the way of organ music, and the organ is the "king of instruments".

I would like to follow the score while listening.

I think (as a listener) that the organ is quite difficult. If one doesn't know well how to control it (in composition) it will be a mess, a disaster.

This is not the case. The sound is clean and I don't "see" any mess.

While listening I wasn't bored at all. I like it a lot.

Stravinsky called it the instrument that never breathes.


So he did. I am very fond of Stravinsky's pronouncements. The term "king of instruments" is from Mozart (who was warned that playing the organ would ruin his piano technique). The organ definitely allows long pedal points!
