La Fille Aux Cheveux De Lin
(The Girl With the Flaxen Hair)
From: Preludes Book 1, (1909-1910)
Composer: Claude Debussy
Transcribed for Orgue: Leon Roues
arranged for theatre organ by artist
I've loved this selection ever since I bought the album: "Snowflakes Are Dancing" released in 1974 by the electronic artist Isao Tomita. Originally written for piano it has been transcribed for orchestra, violin, trombones, saxophones and just about every combination of instruments you can think of!
The organ is a "prototype" that hasn't yet been finalized. I make use of the melody couplers that are a part of the sample set, along with a variety of complex combinations. And then I bath the organ in a bit more reverb then I normally have used to bring out what my ear thinks of as an "impressionistic color."
