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

The famous collection of"Pieces 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.

- Evaluation of all available autograph manuscripts, first printed editions and previously unpublished letters
- Editorial clarification superseding the long-standing international correction lists
- Foreword in three languages (Fr/Eng/Ger), with detailed performance practice tips and Critical Commentary (Fr/Eng/Ger)
- Numerous illustrations and facsimile pages
