new tutorial book about techniques of practising the organ
This book is intended for use by all who are professionally involved with organ playing: organ students, organists and organ teachers.
"Practising the Organ" is divided up into diverse sections corresponding to diverse physical as well as mental aspects of professional organ playing. Using examples from representative Baroque, Romantic and Modern organ literature, short passages have been taken out exemplifying typical technical or mental difficulties and used to demonstrate how to overcome them.
As in a reference book, these exercises may, after closer examination of the core of a problematic passage, be transferred directly onto analogue passages of the same or another piece.
In the author’s experience, these techniques can greatly reduce practising time and, through the continually varying ways of activating listening and memory-skills, lead to continual development of mental conception thus heightening as well as refining one’s will for expression.
