About this Piece

Written when Henri Duparc (1848-1933) was still a fairly young composer in 1874, Aux étoiles (To the stars) represents a sort of anthem in a slowly unfolding triple meter. It was originally the first part of a three-movement orchestral piece with the title Poème nocturne, but the highly self-critical composer destroyed the other two movements. This arrangement for organ is by the French composer Paul Fournier.
