Rieg Fire and Colour: Modern chorale harmonisation and free improvisation for organ
Iris Rieg’s two-volume method in organ improvisation consists of systematic exercises with the goal of achieving new harmonies in organ playing. Using extracts from works by well-known composers, she explains various options for free improvisation on chorale melodies and for providing more modern chorale harmonisations to accompany congregational singing.
With exercises and tips on every performance technique involved, she clearly explains what to look for when making stylistic copies in the manner of François Couperin, Max Reger, Jean Langlais and many other composers.
