These two volumes (BA 9229, BA 9230) continue the ambitious project to publish Vierne’s complete organ and piano works.

The famous collection of “ Pièces de Fantaisie ” comprising 24 fantasy pieces in four volumes (Livres I-IV) has become internationally known. With their varying degrees of difficulty, the pieces are suitable for both professional organists as well as advanced pupils and students.

As there is neither a thematic link nor a unifying tonal scheme within the four books, the pieces are above all a diverse collection of individual works suitable for performance in a wide range of contexts.
