French composer, Jean-Louis Florentz (1947-2004) was a prolific student of Olivier Messiaen. Debout Sur Les Soleil, composed in 1990, is an exciting addition to the Organ repertoire.
Florentz's music is described as having "a strong, evocative power which keeps the clarity of the French style." A typical performance of Debout Sur Les Soleil, Ressurection song for Organ, lasts about 25 minutes. It is a virtuosic and modern piece, yet provides organists with an exciting, alternative performance work.
For all advanced organists seeking to vary their repertoire, Florentz's Debout Sur Les Soleil makes for an exciting addition to the repertoire.
