A brilliant anthology of virtuoso works that will delight serious organists, this collection of 26 arrangements from the scores of the great composers encompasses true masterpieces of the transcriber’s art. The transcribers include such experts as Liszt, Saint-Saëns, Guilmant, Vierne, and Best, treating the music of Chopin, Schumann, Debussy, Vivaldi, and many others.
Highlights include the Chaconne from J. S. Bach’s second Partita in D Minor for solo violin; Brahms' Hungarian Dance No. 5; Handel’s The Harmonious Blacksmith and the "Hallelujah Chorus" from Messiah; Rossini's William Tell Overture; "The Swan" from Saint-Saëns' The Carnival of the Animals; three "Danses caracteristiques" from Tchaikovsky's ballet The Nutcracker (featuring the ever-popular "Dance of the Sugar-Plum Fairy"); and Wagner’s "Bridal Chorus" from Lohengrin.
Editor Rollin Smith supplies an informative Introduction, with notes on the history of each piece.
