Manufacturer Description

Making Music on the Organ has actually currently established itself as a vital guide to the art of organ playing. It records the ideas which underpin Peter Hurford's efficiency and teaching and its primary issue, as the title suggests, is to show how to make music, rather than merely playing the notes, on this instrument. There is recommendations on the technical problems of efficiency, an explanation of the functions of the instrument, and chapters on analysis, including, most usefully, reflections on the analysis of Bach. This brand-new paperback edition makes a number of textual modifications and additions, and consists of three brand-new appendices on the concepts of good organ design, the swell-box, and the character. This title also appears in the Oxford General Books brochure for Autumn 1990. Contents: Notes of Usage; Introduction; The Organists Place in Musical Performance; How the Organ Works; A Basic Physical Approach to the Organ; The technical Basis of Movement and Expression; Some Thoughts on Interpretation; Towards a grounding in Bach Interpretation; The French Classical School; Renaissance; Appendices; Reading List; Index of Works Cited; General Index.
