François BENOIST

PBM 26.96
Pieces for Organ. Volume I

“When the Benoist' compositions are not at the same level as those by his student C. Franck, they however reveal how he had a thorough knowledge of his job. The Publimuses publication is clear, both the presentation and the editorial notes are concise but comprehensive. All the sources are given.”
(T. van Eck, KDOV [Nederlands], January 1997)

“The organists will appreciate discovering the works by the Franck's teacher. Imposing for the most, they are in an original style and plenty modulations, and they are the sign of a ‘reliable’ composer. There are about 200 pages of music and a thorough preface.”
(Guy Bovet, La Tribune de l’orgue no. 4, December 1996)

“Thanks to F. Sabatier and N. Bertrand for their excellent job, more especially as it is accompanied by irreproachable editorial notes. This beautiful edition, legibly engraved, might please the organists who bother to play everytime the same pieces.”
(E. Kocevar, L’Orgue no. 240, 4th quarter 1996)

“Many organists wondered what the music composed by F. Benoist (organ teacher at the Conservatoire de Paris from 1819 to 1872!) looks like. Thanks to the editor to have published this elegant score including 30 pieces, numerous editorial notes, and clearly engraved.”
(J. Ferrard, Magazine de l’orgue no. 29, june 1996)

François BENOIST

PBM 29.99
Pieces for Organ. Volume II

“I already had the opportunity to introduce in this magazine that new parisian publisher, Publimuses, which has specialized in the publication (and re-publication) of the French 19th century repertoire. For those who appreciate that repertoire’s ‘perfume’, Publimuses brings out here the complete works by Benoist.
“In the Benoist’s writing, who is using widely the modulations, one can observe the influences on Franck. The pieces included in this second volume are clearly designated for a litugical purpose, though several of them, being very long, are rather for the concert.
“The engraving and the layout are especially attractive.”

(A. Macinanti, Arte oraganaria e organistica, no. 29, september-october 1999)
