At just 34 years of age, Theodore Dubois was installed as a professor of harmony at the Paris Conservatoire. Whilst much of his compositional works have disappeared from primary classical repertoire, his 12 Pièces Nouvelles for Organ remain prominent.
Whilst being a significant figure in the field of teaching, Dubois was also a revered organist, occupying the post of organist at the Madeleine. Dubois' 12 Pièces Nouvelles vary in character, beginning with a helpful index of performance directions. For all aspiring, advanced organists, Dubois' 12 Pièces Nouvelles ensure variety and versatility within the repertoire.
