Workshop – Discovering and Transcribing the Historic Organ Improvisations of Marcel Dupré

July 10 @ 12:00 pm - 12:50 pm

Presented by: David A. Stech, PhD
Location: Hyatt Regency – Inman

Dr. Stech will discuss his ongoing project to discover obscure and rare sound recordings of organ improvisations performed by renowned French organist Marcel Dupré (1886-1971). A brief discussion regarding the techniques used to transcribe and reconstruct music score engravings for publication will follow.

Also to be discussed will be the task of securing contractual permission from descendants of the composer to publish these engravings. The purpose of this project is to make these improvisations available to today’s organists so that the public can hear and more fully appreciate Dupré’s extraordinary improvisational gifts.

If time permits, visual samples of his music score transcriptions will be presented along with a playback of Dupré’s original recorded performances.
