9780253171467: Organ Technique: A Basic Course of Study

Here is an organ method & anthology with a difference. In the author's clear & systematic presentation manuals & pedals are used together from the starts, & ornaments are explained as they occur in the music. Finger substitution is postponed until the student understands simple fingering problems, finger crossing, & contraction & expansion. A unique feature of this book is the author's precise rationale for phrasing & articulation. The teaching pieces used not only fulfill technical needs but also supply the student with some knowledge of the historic development of the organ & its music during the late Renaissance & early baroque periods. Contents: Unit I · Attack & release in manuals · Legato · Playing the pedals: Alternate toes, white keys only Unit 2 · Finger independence · Finger extension & contraction · Basic rules for ornamentation · Alternate toes, black & white keys · Basic concepts of organ mechanics · Classification of organ stops · Couplers · Combination pistons · Crescendo & expression pedals · Registration Unit 3 · Basic rules for playing polyphonic music · A brief introduction to the history & development of organ literature · Further remarks concerning ornaments · Toe & hell · Scale wise passages in the pedal · Scale passages, manual & pedal · The chorale prelude · A brief consideration of the Ecclesiastical modes Unit 4 · Finger crossing · Frescobaldi & the Italian organ · Absolute intervals for pedal Unit 5 · Finger substitution · Absolute intervals in pedals continued: Black & white keys Unit 6 · Finger & thumb glissandos · The chorale fughetta & fugue · The French school of organ playing · The Venetian school · The Orgelbuchlein of Bach · Pedal glissandos · Pedal substitution Unit 7 · Phrasing & articulation · A further consideration of Baroque ornamentation & more
