Franck Complete Works for Organ & for Harmonium Volume I

Bärenreiter has joined forces with the International César Franck Society to produce a five-volume complete edition of the organ works of César Franck.  In addition to all accessible sources, it draws on previously neglected manuscripts, making it possible to offer a reliable musical text based on meticulous text-critical comparisons.  Text variants, cases of doubt and editorial decisions are recorded in a comprehensive Critical Commentary.

Volume 1, edited by Christiane Strucken-Paland, is the first publication to contain all of Franck’s surviving early organ works, fragments and variants.  Special attention has been given to his largest early work, the Fantasy in A major, which was left unpublished during his lifetime and only resurfaced a few years ago.  Here Franck already displays his consummate mastery of thematic development.

– Organ works at the forefront of Franck scholarship

– Foreword (Fr/Eng/Ger) and comprehensive Critical Commentary (Eng)
