Liszt/Dupré: Ad nos, ad salutarem undam

Reading time: 1 min. Marcel Dupré Franz Liszt

Franz Liszt used the chorale Ad nos, ad salutarem undam, originally from Giacomo Meyerbeer’s opera Le Prophète, as the basis for a Fantasia and Fugue. The “Prophet Fugue”, as he called it, is one of the most impressive works of a secular character in organ literature. Marcel Dupré, one of the great 20th century masters of the organ, arranged it highly effectively for orchestra; it was considered lost until it was rediscovered and performed again in 2007.

The Deutsche Radio Philharmonie and Martin Haselböck will record Ad nos, ad salutarem undam for a forthcoming cpo CD. In addition, a film of the concert is being made for the German/French culture TV station ARTE.
