FOREWORD

Dear colleagues! This edition is addressed to studying youth. It is a small unique fragment of creative activity by César Franck (1822-1890) - an artist, who is an unquestionable leader in developing the French symphonic and instrumental chamber music of the second half of the XIXth century.

Quite massive, but unfortunately unfinished and practically forgotten cycle by C.Franck "L'Organiste" was being created in parallel with the other well-known triad "Three Chorales for Organ" during the final one and half - two years of composer's life (death was the reason, as investigators of art by Master think, that the cycle was not finished). According to the composer's plan, composition was to be performed on harmonium or so-called small organ. The first publication of the last Franck's masterpiece was done after composer's death in Paris in 1905.

To our view, the uniqueness of the cycle by C.Franck, which is presented on the pages of this edition is not just in its "rebirth", discovery for young performers, but in the fact, that the instrument for which it was written - harmonium - by its construction and the nature of making the sound, was practically the predecessor of the modern accordion or bayan. All existing musical encyclopaedias and handbooks witness about it. Namely this fact of extraordinary importance pushed us to the idea (maybe somewhat unexpected on the first glance) that all the compositions, that were written in the XIXth century for harmonium by such grands of world music as C.Franck, F.Liszt, C.Saint-Saëns, L.Boëllmann and others we can absolutely straightforwardly consider as ORIGINAL classical bayan-accordion repertoire of unique bright romantic colouring.

C.Franck's "L'Organiste" consists of 63 pieces and includes 9 independent mini-cycles (suites). Every contains seven independent pieces. Besides, each seventh (final) piece of every suite accumulates thematic material of all the previous six parts. Curious and absolutely evident is such a detail: each of mini-cycles is built by author on a precise sequence of a chromatic scale (C - Cis - D - Dis and so on). The cycle breaks off on "Seven pieces in A-flat major and G-sharp minor".

All pieces of the cycle are not difficult, but are various in character. One can meet compositions with polyphonic nature as well as of songs-like type. Despite the modest aim and little scale, the pieces are full of magic poesy. One can feel the hand of a true and unique Master, the particular style of Franck: his typical harmonic and melodic writing, freedom of modulations, tonal variability. As a contemporary of Franck, famous French organist Louis Vierne told "the generosity of Franck's invention is simply wonderful: inimitable by richness polyphony, in which the melody, the harmony and the architectonics compete in originality, - is a thrilling discovery, lit up by a sparkle of a true genius".

So, dear colleagues, do not miss the happy opportunity to carefully examine the last unique masterpiece by great César Franck. I'm sure - you will not regret!

I wish you pleasant aesthetic impressions and inspiration in making music!
With respect,
Anatoly Semeshko
