Abstract:Rolande Falcinelli (1920-2006) enjoyed a remarkable and multi-faceted career as pedagogue, church organist, recitalist, improviser, and composer. She was professeur d’orgue at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris from 1954-1986, held the post of organiste-titulaire at Basilique de Sacré-Coeur from 1946-1973, maintained a rigorous performing calendar throughout her career, and left more than 85 works for nearly all media, earning such prizes as the Grand Prix de Rome, the Prix Halphen, and the Prix Rossini. Of these works, 26 are scored for solo organ, and an additional 15 are chamber or orchestral works utilizing organ. Despite Falcinelli’s considerable output, her organ works have yet to enter the so-called ‘canon’ of the organ repertoire and remain largely unknown and rarely performed or recorded. This study surveys Falcinelli’s published works for solo organ and places them within five broad topical categories: pedagogical, ecclesiastical, Biblical, Persian, and relational.
