Louis Victor Jules Vierne (8 October 1870 – 2 June 1937) was a French organist and composer. When he was only two years of age, he heard the piano for the first time: a pianist played him a Schubert lullaby, and after he had finished young Louis promptly began to pick out the notes of the lullaby on the piano.
Suite for Organ, Op. 5: II. Sicilienne. 3. Suite for Organ, Op. 5: III. Toccata.
Louis Vierne was born in Poitiers, France in 1870. He followed Cesar Franck and Charles Marie Widor as the foremost organ composer of France, especially on the newer symphonic organs. Some of Vierne's students gained as much or more fame than did he. Among them were Marcel Dupre, Joseph Bonnet, Nadia Boulanger, Olivier Messiaen, Maurice Durufle, Gaston Litaize and Jean Langlais. He suffered a massive stroke and died on the organ bench during a 1937 concert.
Listen to albums and songs from Marcel Dupre. His works introduced a Lisztian virtuosity and a contemplative modality into organ music; he also wrote religious symphonic poems. Alain and Messiaen were among his pupils. Maurice Durufle, Virgil Fox. Main Releases.

Composer: Charles Tournemire, Louis Vierne, Olivier Messiaen, Marcel Dupré. erformer: Pétur Sakari. His powerful, bleak performance of Duruflé’s mighty Suite, on the organ for which it was written, is a culmination of his studies with the successors of Monsieur and Madame Duruflé - who was also an organist. And it’s also dedicated to his mother, who, before her untimely death, insisted Sakari fly to Paris to study the work further. She lived long enough to sit beside him on the bench as he practiced it. There is a smart alternation of heavy and light music on programme.
