Improvisations on European National Anthems, vol. 1


Acclaimed organist Pierre Pincemaille improvises in classical forms on nine European anthems. Many melodies are well-known to American listeners, such as Haydn’s Austria, the French anthem “La Marseillaise,” and Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy” (the anthem of the European Union). The extensive notes contain music for each melody heard, high quality photos, and a historical account of the Stahlhuth/Jann organ.
