Description

Marcel Dupr�'s career as an organist spanned the first seven decades of the 20th century and took him all over Europe, North America, and Australasia. He delighted vast audiences wherever he played and attracted large numbers of enthusiastic students, for whom his church of St. Sulpice in Paris and his home at Meudon were musical Meccas. Dupr� had a profound influence on a host of musicians who sought his guidance, and as a composer for the organ his place in the historical line of J.S. Bach, the Couperins, C�sar Franck, Widor and Vierne is assured. Graham Steed is recognized for his skilled and musicianly advocacy of Dupr�'s compositions, and he brings a keen and discerning intelligence to his analyses.
