César Franck as a Receptor of Bach's Organ Works

Show Summary Details


This chapter explores how César Franck encountered Bach's organ music as a composer, organist, and teacher. Particular attention is paid to Franck's appropriation of Bach's organ works as compositional models, his organ recitals in and around Paris, his organ studio at the Paris Conservatory, and his Braille edition of Bach's organ music for the National Institute of Blind Youths in Paris. Both as a pedagogue and composer, Franck played a critical role in the revival of Bach's music in nineteenth-century France.
