With his"Douze Preludes"op. 36 and"Trois Nocturnes"op. 35 composed between 1914 and 1916, Vierne followed in the Romantic piano tradition, whilst lending the historic models that special sound between elegance and expressivity, as is characteristic for French music of the period.

- First critical Urtext edition based on all available autograph manuscripts and printed sources
- With a detailed foreword and critical commentary (Fr/Eng/Ger), complemented by numerous facsimiles
- Well-presented layout

The editor of the volume is the distinguished pianist Olivier Gardon. As a performer and scholar, he has researched Louis Vierne's piano music for over twenty years of which he has an unparalleled knowledge. This can be convincingly heard on Olivier Gardon's complete CD recording of 1995.

"These are excellent, refreshing and innovative publications; I recommend all pianists and teachers looking for new and rewarding repertoire to explore these and have them in their collections."
