Product description

Louis Victor Jules Vierne was born in Poitiers on 8 October 1870, the son of a journalist at the Figaro. Born blind, he underwent a successful operation aged seven, but lost his sight again 38 years later. He began his musical training (violin/organ) at the Valentin Haüy Institution for the blind, was an organ pupil of César Franck at the Paris Conservatoire, later becoming a substitute at Saint Sulpice, where Charles-Marie Widor taught. Vierne won First Prize in the 1894 competition. After a further contest on 21 May 1900, he was appointed organist at Notre-Dame. This widely educated man was to have a lasting influence on the intellectual and cultural environment of his sphere of activity. A sought-after teacher and internationally famous virtuoso, he trained important organists in his organ class. In 1911 Vincent d'Indy asked him to conduct a masterclass at the Paris Schola Cantorum. Except for a period in Switzerland from 1916 to 1920, Vierne worked at Notre- Dame for 37 years, until his death. He died in Paris on 2 June 1937. While Vierne's output reveals the stylistic influence of his teachers C. Franck, Ch. Widor and more particularly Gabriel Fauré, he contributed brilliant, effective and harmonically adventurous works to French organ literature. He wrote six grandiose organ symphonies, 24 pieces in 'free style', masses for mixed chorus and organ, a Requiem and a tone poem for violin and orchestra. Many of his large-scale works are still unpublished. Apart from songs and charmingly evocative piano music, his chamber music, often subtly chromatic, is admirable. He left an excellent, harmonically very varied string quartet, a piano quintet, one sonata for violin and piano and one for cello and piano. These two pieces for viola and piano belong to the light classical genre of 'Songs without words'. They appeared undated in 1895, dedicated to the violist Victor Balbreck, who had played the first performance with the composer on 5 April 1895 in Paris, and entitled 'D E U X P I ╚ C E S / POUR / ALTO / avec Accompagnement de PIANO / I. - L E S O I R / I I . - L E G E N D E / PAR / L O U I S V I E R N E / Les Mêmes pour Violoncelle avec Accompt. de Piano / Paris, ALPHONSE LEDUC, Editeur, 3, Rue de Grammont.'
