    My second Once Upon the Internet post in our Lenten organ series presents the complete sets of Preludes and Fugues for organ of French composer and organ virtuoso, Camille Saint-SaŽns.

    For all his notoriety as a dominant figure in French music, we seem to forget that Saint-SaŽns played the organ at various churches in Paris and in the surrounding area. In 1857, he replaced Louis Lefťbure-Wely at the eminent position of organist at the …glise de la Madeleine, ...

  2. Hey! I made a new Group! Please Join!

    by , Jan-06-2013 at 04:06
    I figured it was about time I made a group for Russian composers here and put my footprint on this forum in that way. I'm going to share more in-depth things I've found in my research. I actually have a number of friends on this website called Turntable that have joined me in discovering new Russian music (we all share our own discoveries in collective sessions of music). Whatever catches my eye(ear) there, I will share here. Otherwise, the Group is for discussion and sharing. Everyone who is interested ...
  3. The Podcast Directories

    This wee's Tuesday Blog doesn't have a musical theme and illustration, but rather 75.

    Starting on April 1st 2011, I have produces a new music montage almost every week - as of last Friday, I had 83. In a shameless bit of self-promotion, I wanted to provide TCers with a detailed directory of my first 75 music montages - nearly 100 hours of music, all of which is accessible anytime on the Internet Archive. ...

    Earlier this month on my Friday Blog and Podcast, I provided a sample of orchestral and piano music by Maurice Ravel to commemorate the 75th annioversary of his passing. This instalment of Once Upon the Internet considers some of his piano music, as downloaded years ago from the original MP3.COM.

    Although Ravel has often been compared to Claude Debussy, it is fair ...

  5. Louis Vierne (1870-1937)

    During our Lenten organ series, I peeked at three significant French organists: Widor, Duprť and Messiaen. During my look at Widor , I pointed out (accurately) that 2012 is the 75th anniversary of his passing, inexplicably ignoring another significant milestone – the 75th anniversary of the passing of his student Louis Vierne. Today’s post is meant to rectify this sin of omission from my part.

    Vierne and Widor are the subject of my Friday Podcast ...
