Organists and Organ Playing in Nineteenth-Century France and Belgium
Orpha Ochse

From the catastrophes of the French Revolution to a Golden Age of organ culture.

"[O]ne simply must recommend this highly coherent and well-illustrated book...."―L’Orgue

"Even the well-informed reader will find a number of surprises. Who knows, for example, that Fryderyk Chopin played the organ for a funeral service and that Lefébure-Wély, in turn, played the great pianist and composer’s Préludes for his funeral at the Madeleine? The abundance of details, we should add, does nothing to obscure the architectural clarity of this book." ―La Flûte harmonique

"Now Ms. Ochse has succeeded in producing still another landmark work.... Although the work is extraordinarily well documented, the prose retains a narrative quality throughout, at times even taking on the character of good storytelling." ―The American Organist

Orpha Ochse, Professor Emerita at Whittier College, is author of The History of the Organ in the United States (Indiana University Press). She is well known as a teacher, lecturer, recitalist, and church musician.
