dc.description.abstract Cesar Franck, Charles-Marie Widor, and Louis Vierne were among the most important figures in France during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. They made an enormous contribution to organ literature and the organ playing tradition. However, many of their compositions have proved difficult to execute for organists with small hands. Throughout the organ works of Franck intervals greater than the octave abound. In numerous pieces by Widor and Vierne, melodic intervals or cords are positioned in such a way that precise attacks and releases are challenging. This document demonstrates solutions to the various problems that organists with small hands encounter in playing the literature from this period.
