The six Symphonies represent the most important group of Vierne's organ compositions. With these works he carried on the splendid French tradition of this genre bringing it to its peak. Vierne's compositional models are clearly discernible: primarly Franck and Widor, but also Mendelssohn and Schumann. Along with the beautiful melodic ideas in his slow movements and the occasion ally bizarre ideas in his scherzi and intermezzi, it is above all his chromaticism that characterizes Vierne's style. The complete edition of his organ works provides a musical text as accurate and authentic as possible: It corrects obvious misprints from the first editions, provides commentary on questionable passages and offers alternative solutions. It is based on the first editions, the composer's manuscripts and lists of corrections from colleagues, pupils and present-day interpreters closely concerned with Vierne's music. All works are also available in separate editions.
