Commotio: Carl Nielsen's Symphony for Organ: A Lecture Recital, Together with Three Recitals of Selected Works of F. Couperin, J.S. Bach, P. Hindemith, M. Duruflé, S. Raisin, D. Buxtehude, M. Reger, F. Martin, M. Weckmann, F. Tunder, V. Lübeck, C.P.E. Bach, and L. Vierne
Description: The lecture recital was given on March 25, 1984. Commotio by Carl Nielsen was performed following a lecture on that particular organ composition. The lecture included a discussion of Carl Nielsen, characteristics of his six symphonies, a detailed analysis of Commotio, and the symphonic characteristics found in Commotio. Some examples from the symphonies as well as other works were performed during the lecture to illustrate the similarities between Commotio and his orchestral works. In addition to the lecture recital, three other public recitals were performed, all of which consisted of solo compositions for the organ. The first solo recital, including works of Couperin, Bach, Hindemith, and Duruflé, was performed on October 30, 1980. On May 6, 1981, the second solo recital was performed. Compositions by Raison, Buxtehude, Bach, Reger, and Martin were included in the program. The third solo recital which included works by Weckmann, Tunder, Lübeck, C. P. E. Bach, and Vierne, was performed on April 25, 1983. The four programs were recorded on magnetic tape and are filed with the written version of the lecture material as a part of the dissertation.
